  1. Cant get Icons on desktop


    Hello, So I have recently built my own pc and went to go download stuff from the Microsoft store. I was able to download stuff like Forza 4 and MSI dragon center. The thing is when I downloaded those programs they never gave me an icon on my desktop. to be able to play Forza or pull up the dragon center I need to type in the search bar for it. What I am trying to ask is how do I get Forza and dragon center as an icon on my desktop so I can just click on it instead of searching for it.

    :)

  2. 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.
