same 5 icons randomly delete themselves from desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently run into a problem where the same 5 game shortcut icons will randomly delete themselves, when i reboot, or wake up the computer.  It is only these 5 game shortcuts, and all the other shortcuts have no problems.  It is getting very frustrating to have to constantly move the icons back to my desktop.  Any Solutions?

  • Hi,

    In this case I suspect the issue is caused by some Anti-Virus software delete it. Please check the Anti-Virus software setting or temporarily disable the Anti-Virus software.

    Also, you may follow the steps below to copy the Icon to the desktop of Public.

    1. Open C:\Users\Public.
    2. Then copy the Icons to this folder.

  • The maintain task which is run when the PC is idle is the cause.

    take ownership of the file C:\ Windows\Diagnostics\Scheduled\Maintenance\TS_BrokenShortcuts.ps1 > and open the file with notepad and to, to line 44:

    and increase the value from 4 to let me say 10. Save the file.


    best regards
