Getting Rid of the Network Neighborhood Icon
If you have installed dial-up networking, Windows95 thinks that you need
the Network Neighborhood icon on your desktop. It actually doesn't do anything
for dial-up connections, but dragging it into the recycle bin doesn't work.
Here's how you do it:
Load up the System Policy Editor (poledit.exe) on your Windows95 CD-ROM (it's
in the Admin\Apptools\Poledit folder).
If you are asked to "Open a Template File," choose admin.adm in the same
folder, and click OK.
Select Open Registry from the File menu.
Double-click on the Local User icon.
Open Local_User\ Shell\ Restrictions.
Check Hide Network Neighborhood.
Click OK, and select Save from the File menu.
You'll have to restart Windows for this change to take effect.
Note: This setting can also be changed with TweakUI, one of Microsoft's PowerToys
