Checkboxes Icons on Vista Desktop
  

I have installed the windows 7 on mine system and last night I have upgraded mine system and installed the windows vista on mine system. Mine installation worked and I have no issue on the system but on my desk, all my icons have a little check box in the upper right corner; I find irritating and hoped that would eliminate the check boxes of the icons. I have tried to do this but it doesn’t help me to solve mine issue. Can anyone suggest on this and I need to know what the use of Checkboxes Icons on Vista Desktop is. Can anyone help on this issue?

Re: Checkboxes Icons on Vista Desktop

Adding check boxes in Windows vista is important for Microsoft to claim that the new operating system is fully compatible with touch. With multi-touch screens become common place, is a real pain to use a keyboard to hit CTRL key repeatedly or on a tablet, a keyboard opening only CTRL to select multiple files that are not adjacent to each other. Using a stylus or a finger to check the boxes and select multiple files, however, it is important that users of the tablet. Although it is "just another way to distinguish the files that are selected" for desktop users.

Generally, to select multiple files, you can use the Ctrl key. Holding down the Ctrl key can be multiple files in the same folder. It is easier to make multiple selections with the help of the check box. These check boxes are not normally shows all the time so these check boxes for all files not disorder within a folder. Only when you move your cursor over a file of a small check box will appear as a new column to the left of the file name when the folder view is listed in detail or in the upper left, if the view of folders in the icon mode.
