    I was wondering how to remove a icon on the desktop of hard disk attached at AirPort Extreme.

    Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure you can just eject it like any other disk, can you not?

    You mean, to un-mount it? Easy, just eject it. Drag it down towards the trash (it will turn into an eject symbol as you do so), or right-click it and choose "eject," or do Cmd+E with it selected in the Finder.

    Yes you can but is there a way that you can still be conected to the disk without it being on the desktop.

    Thanks.

    Click on the desktop, then in the menubar, click Finder->Preferences and untick the box :)
