    will desktop icons have any effect on the speed of a computer? For instance would having 50 desktop shortcuts cause windows/games to run slower than having just 2?
     
  2. I really doubt it would have any efffect on the speed of games or windows itself. I'd suggest deleting some of your unused programs and bumping up your RAM. uninstall and programs you don't use

    It don't think it affects your games. While you're running your game, it will redraw your screen (refresh your game screen), and perform calculations related to your game. Your desktop has nothing to do with it. Shortcuts are just links to files.

    However, if it does affect it, it wouldn't be noticeable.

    hypothetically it eats more resources... but if that's slowing down your computer noticably, then you have other issues.
