Yes, like all the mezzanine code, the network handlers, bitmap images and so on.

All the stuff of desktop is in the block ctx-viewtop which becomes an objects when you first execute the function desktop. Here it is the source: desktop: func [][ if block? ctx-viewtop [ctx-viewtop: context ctx-viewtop] ctx-viewtop/init-desktop do-events ]

If you want to remove all the desktop code you can do: ctx-viewtop: none desktop: none You should gain a little more than 100 Kb, after the command recycle But the 118 words added by the desktop code to the global context cannot been recycled. --- Ciao Romano
