Why aren't temporary .pptx files cleaned up from the virtual desktop when powerpoint is terminated?
Symptoms ~$.pptx temporary files are not deleted after closing PowerPoint within the virtual desktop. This issue is only seen when using the pptx extension. When a powerpoint file is created using Office 2007, a temporary file prepending the ~$ characters and appending a .pptx extension is also created to keep track of changes in the document. In the normal desktop this file is deleted when power point is closed but in the virtual desktop the temporary file remains.
This activity is by design.
Disable "Show hidden files and folders" in folder options while in the virtual desktop by right-clicking , then click "Explore". Click the "Tools" menu, then "Folder Options". Click the "Vew" tab and uncheck "Show hidden files and folders".
