    Click on Finder on the top left corner of your screen next to the black apple icon.

    Finder->Preferences->General
    Uncheck Hard disks

    Disclaimer: the needed function is still there despite the screenshot of an older Mac OS X version.

    Do you guys know how come OSX lines up the desktop icons on the Right side and Windows does it on the Left side?

    I think MS was afraid it might give the appearance that they were copying Apple.
