    Dumb question but... have you tried right clicking the desktop > View > show show desktop icons?

    I only thought of that, because it's near impossible to delete ALL the icons when scrubbing the ol' fingerboard*Wink, that and I keep icons turned off, because I use the desktop toolbar in the taskbar to access them.

    Well, they are native icons. but when Windows 10 is freshly installed, there are no desktop icons. I found the setting to add them buried deep in the settings tile, and turned on This PC, Control Panel and a few other things. Don't ask me to find it again, heh. I can't remember where it was. But once those are added to the desktop they'll stay put.
