    Attached is a picture of the desktop, the new drive icons are a result of a new drive partitioned out. I would prefer not to see them on the desktop but want to see the Macintosh HD , what method would I use to do this.

    TIA

    Finder / Preferences / de-select all the drives you don't want to see.

    Simple :)

    Simple yes, but it does not give a choice of which drives specifically to see and which to not see

    Are they NTFS, if so, you'll need to rename them from Windows.

    Go to Finder -> Preferences and uncheck External Drives in the show on desktop options. Alas, you can't toggle on/off individual drives.
