  • Hi,

    First of all, you can check if you select an option under “Sort By”. You would find this option by right click your mouse on the desktop.

    Also you can work around this issue by “Resetting folders”. Please find the option from Control panel>Folder Options>View.

    Finally you can try to Clear Icon datacase.

    which locate at C:\Users\User-Name\AppData\Local\IconCache.db. Delete the IconCache.db.

    Hope  this helps.
