I cannot for the life of me figure out how to remove items from my desktop. Let me rephrase that. I cannot remove the Macintosh HD icon from the desktop. What the Hell?

Thx in advance.

Click on your desktop (not an actual item), then move your cursor to the menu bar. Follow the following via the menu bar:

Finder > Preferences... > Tab: "General" > Show these items on the Desktop:

Deselect "Hard disks." (And any others that apply.)
