    Hi,

     

    Thanks for the post!

     

    What will happen when you double-click an icon?

    Does this issue only occur on the Desktop?

     

    A screenshot would be better for troubleshooting, you can upload it through SkyDrive.

     

    You can try modify the Default Programs in Control Panel, reset every entries to see if it works.

     

    Regards,

    Miya
