Personally I never used it. I pride myself in maintaining a strict Desktop Clutter Policy and rarely allow any programs I install to take occupation on my desktop. Therefore I never needed the DCW, and could remove that annoying popup reminder all together.
Here’s how you do it
- Right click an empty area on the desktop.
- Click Properties and select Properties.
- Click the Desktop tab.
- Click Customize Desktop.
- In the Desktop Items dialog box, clear the checkbox labeled “Run Desktop Wizard every 60 days.”
- Click OK to close the dialog boxes.
You can still run the wizard manually should you want to, by clicking “Clean Desktop Now” in the Desktop Items dialog box.
