Just drop it on the Black Hole and it will disappear forever and never come back again. The WPS class by Paul Ratcliffe provides options to disable the incessant prompting for confirmation which the original version suffered from. Source code included.

Black Hole v. 3.0 (8/1/1993) Readme/What's new
BLackHole - by Gregory Czaja; 71052,720 ver.1 November 19, 1992 ver.2 can delete a desktop, which is not the current one December 07, 1992 ver.3 improved class handling January 08, 1993 requires SOMFIX or SP or OS/2 2.1 to work properly ! get BLACKH.ZIP if you have a GA level OS/2 system Be careful... Now YOU are the master of your desktop's universe. Till yesterday you could create anything on your desktop. But sometimes it showed some bad habits and didn't let you remove what you created... Today, you can do ANYTHING ! You can send any object you don't like to the other side of the desktop's universe. Just drop it on the Black Hole and it will disappear forever - and never come back again. Just kidding... But the truth is, you can delete ANYTHING. Unzip the file and run BLACKHOLE.CMD. It will create an object on your desktop. This is it ! And don't try to delete your Desktop... Enjoy ! Greg Version 3: ------------ Attention ! -------------- SOMFIX is required if you want to use this version ! This version allows you to delete an inactive Desktop. However, be warned that I have experienced myself problems doing that. Removing objects from the inactive desktop may cause standard (WPS) objects from the ACTIVE one to disappear. There are users, which succesfully removed "spare" desktops without any problem. Be careful ! This version also handles correctly any descendent classes and suppreses all of the default WPS messages. Version 2: This version will resolve composite objects (folders) and eventually reset the READ ONLY attribute... No mercy ! --------------------------------- Distribution ------------------------------- Distribution: you may use and distribute the program and its source free under following conditions: - the authors name will NOT be removed from the source, - the source or parts of thereof will not be used in commercial products without obtaining author's permission first.
