    Well i was extracting some fonts i just got and something very weird happened it was taking for ever so i stoped it. My desktop was acting funny slow and freezing and a ton of files!

    So i go my desktop in windows explorer and it says i have over 2000 files (2362 to be exact)

    I stoped the exctracting while 15% through think how many files there would be if i went all the way!

    They could be in folders, so he could just have 3 icons on his desktop theoretically

    Things you should do - delete all the files you just extracted and extract them somewhere else

    Using your desktop as your file organizer/manager isn't always the best thing to do - be sure to delete stuff you are done with (installation programs, already watched shows, already backedup stuff, etc)

    Yeah i always do that, Firefox just downloads the stuff there, and i dont feel like changing it.
    It wasnt supposed to have 20000 files in it (it was a font I was extracting)

    There are ways a batch file could do this, but I think you'd know if you were running it. Unless...nevermind. *shifty*

    Time to go through some mass-deletion.
