how to remove the dreaded homebrew from desktop in windows 7 and up

Post by Admin - AutisAwsome on Thu May 05, 2016 3:15 am

So I found this little helpful nugget of information coz it is common for the homebrew feature shortcut to randomly appear on your desktop when you have windows 7 or higher. I don't want to accidently use this feature and it clutters my desktop so it really annoys me! Evil or Very Mad I can't even delete it like any other shortcut coz it counts as a special one for your computer. HOWEVER this link will tell you how to remove the darn thing. I tried it and it worked for me thank GOD! Rolling Eyes so I thought I would just post this here in case anyone needed any help with this or would find it useful in the future.

its something that is automatically on windows 7 and 8 and it is really annoying coz it wants you to connect to other pcs through a very dodgy system and keeps trying to get you at the most random times. sometimes updates bring it back when you get rid of it so this is a quick fix for that
