Hi Mikeslr,

I got it to stick in the upper right corner of the desktop.
I can live with that. Laughing

Thank you for the instructions. I learned a lot from tinkering with your suggestion.

Sky

Hi Sky Aisling,

"When you say 'Remove the desktop launcher', do you mean the savefile icon?" Yes. But an icon is just a graphic. The reason that clicking a "desktop icon" does anything is that an icon has been used to decorate a launcher.

One of the unfortunate --and as yet not completely internalized-- consequences of covid19 is the effect it will have on tourism. A couple of years ago my wife and I took a bus tour thru the Balkans. Lake Bled, Slovenia, was one of the over-night stops. We took the boat trip to the dock on the other side. There may have been a funicular up to the castle. At any rate, we wandered around the castle. IIRC, there was a road on the other side of the mountain leading to the castle.

Returning to the Balkans was one of the things on our to-do list.

mikeslr,
What a beautiful place, so serene feeling.
Yes, that little blue orb with it's bouquet of red roses is certainly shaking up things. I saved for years to buy a reliable car for a trip on my 80th birthday. I got the car the week before my birthday March 21, 2020. Need I say more? Everything was cancelled that following day. So far I have put 60+ miles on the car over the last 2 months. lol. How many weeks per gallon does your buggy get?

Hopefully, you will be able to find a way back to that beautiful place sometime in the near distant future.

Take Care, mikeslr,
Sky

PS- using your suggestion about deleting the code... I tried replacing the save.svg with a icon 'invisible96x8.png'. It worked in replacing the save.svg to a transparent icon but the word 'save' remained in it's place and the actual savefile app would only activate by clicking on the the word 'save'. Fortunately the original savefile icon is sticking in the corner. In the past, when I've rebooted the icon pops back to it original place in the center of the desktop. But, not this time. Got lucky, I guess. Very Happy
