    I realize this is probably a really simple problem, but I was just wondering how to remove the Macintosh HD icon from the desktop. I have no reason for it to be there and I can't figure out how to remove it. Dragging it to the trash seems like it's going to eject the harddrive so to speak. probably not a great idea.

    Thanks.

    Go to the Finder menu, ->Preferences->Sidebar. Uncheck "Hard disks"

    Actually, you don't want the one under "Sidebar." You want the one under "General."
