    add File Viewer Plus icon to desktop


    How do I add the File Viewer Plus icon to desktop? I can't find the actual app on my computer and when you open File Explorer by itself it does not display wmf files as thumbnails. It can be pinned to task bar but there is no option to pin to desktop. If it gets unpinned to task bar how do I open the app?

    :)

  2. File Viewer Plus 3

    Hi Ey88

    If you downloaded File Viewer Plus 3 from the Microsoft Store, you won't find that in Control Panel - Programs and Features, because it is a Store App

    Open the Settings App (gear icon on your Start Menu)

    Go to Apps and in the resulting list, that is where you can uninstall that from

    However, there should be no need to re-install that application, find a .xesc file on your PC, right click that and choose Properties

    On the resulting dialog, click 'Change' then on the resulting list you should be able to set File Viewer Plus 3 as the default

    task viewer icon(virtual desktop)

    I have the same problem. The task viewer icon was there but is now gone. I have gone through the steps you listed but no viewer. Then I created a new profile and the task viewer is there. Now, how do I get the task viewer back in my taskbar in my
    original profile??

    Remove Linux Desktop Icons

    I am not sure whether this will work (Ubuntu does not have icons like that on the desktop by default), but I suggest opening the trash bin and sweeping the icons into the window showing the trash bin.
