If your not going to use a Floppy Drive in your Computer you can disable it and ger rid of the Floppy Drive icon that sits in my computer.



Right click on my computer and select properties. In the hardware tab select 'Device Manager'. In the device manager there should be an expandable menu labelled 'Floppy disk controllers', expand this and you should see something like 'Standard floppy disk controller' right click on this and click disable. If at some time you do need to use a Floppy Drive you can re-able it.

When I purchased my computer, it did not even come with a floppy drive. The A: drive was actually turned of in the BIOS so if you know how to do that and your motherboard allows it, you can disable the drive that way instead.
