Homegroup icon on Windows 8.1 desktop - how to remove it

Control panel - appearance

Suddenly a new icon appeared on my Windows 8.1 desktop, a Homegroup icon that is. It could be a bug.

The procedure to remove it from the desktop is as follows:

  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click on 'Personalize'.
  3. On the left side of the Control Panel window there's a link 'Change desktop icons'. Click on it.
  4. Remove the checkmark with the 'Network' desktop icon and click 'apply'.
  5. Apply the checkmark with the 'Network' desktop icon again and click 'apply'.
  6. The Homegroup icon should be gone.
