I tried to install a scanner and did not install properly, so I used Windows Uninstall (programs and preferences).
The files were removed but left an icon on the desktop.
When I right-click on it and choose "delete" it tells me that it is no longer located on the Desktop.
So I cannot remove it.
Is there a way to do this?
Thank you for any comments.
Update: Thank you Dave Offy: Option 1 worked.
Thank you Morgan.
