I am not a Mac newbie, but on my previous Macs I was never able to use the desktop printer to its full capacity, so I got used to not using it. Now that I'm using an iMac DV with OS 8.6, I notice that an icon appears on my desktop whenever I change my printer in the Chooser. Can someone tell me if there is a way to stop this from happening? If I delete the printer icon from the desktop, it still works from within an application, but when I choose a new printer, a new icon shows up. Call me strange, but I don't like it. I appreciate any help.
