missing desktop icons on windows 10 desktop RRS feed


All replies

  • Right click a blank part of the Desktop, View then is Show Desktop Icons enabled? does that have a click next to it? click it select it if not.

    Settings > Personalisation > Themes and then Desktop icon settings allows you select what icons are displayed.

  • Right clicking on an empty spot on the desktop does NOTHING on my computer.  How do I get the icons back on the desktop?  Thank You.
