Now I'm back with a much less invasive request.
I, after 18 years with admin rights with no problems, no longer have administrative rights to my new
office computer. In other words, my employer is treating me, a long-time trusted employee, a 60 year old engineer
with a Ph.D, as an 8 year old. In short, I find the decisions and attitude of these people, with five years in the organization and who never crunched a number in their lives, most insulting.
If I could bypass my restrictions I would, but short of that, is there at least a
way that I can remove all the annoying icons (icons only, not the programs) the IT people put on my desktop?
Unlike the email readers and memo writers that now dominate my agency, I am an analyst and actually compute on my computer. I don't use Power Point (the tool of choice for those who want to impress while saying nothing of substance, i.e., the dumb-down form of presenting material), Quick Time Player or any other of the junk they put on my desktop. I'd love someone to help me get rid of these icons.
I realize this may appear trivial, but it is the just another harassment in a series of decisions that are reducing the organization's technical capability and lowering morale. I am living Dilbert's life.
