    I just installed Windows 7 via Parallels Desktop on my Mac. I used to have XP SP3 before this where I had it setup that no folders from Windows would show on the OSX desktop, but now that I've installed Windows 7, the folders from Windows are showing on the OSX desktop again. I forgot how to configure this, so can anyone please tell me how to do this?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the quick reply, I tried this but I couldn't seem to figure it out, when I disable "sharing Windows folders with Mac" then the Windows folders till stay on the Mac desktop, I don't know if I'm doing something wrong:confused: Can you be a little more specific on what to do?
