  1. Desktop disappeared after Windows Update


    Dear Microsoft team,


    I am sorry to say that you are causing me quite some trouble since your last update as my desktop has disappeared. I cannot access it anymore (only see the Apps screen), I don't have any pinned icons/programs anymore in my start bar... frankly, quite impossible to work. Could you please urgently get back to me with a solution.


    Best, Paul

    :)

  2. Desktop Disappeared After Windows 10 Update

    After upgrading to windows 10, my desktop completely disappeared, sometimes it will flash for a micro second. The Desktop folder is still in my folder list and I can access it that way but prefer to have access to my desktop. I saw the other thread where
    it suggested a clean boot, but this did not work. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Windows Update does it again: Disappearing Desktop Icons

    Couple of things:

    Disappearing icons during normal use is not something that Windows tends to do, so there's a problem somewhere on your system.

    Leaving Windows Update for so long is asking for problems. Set the updater to download critical updates, but install only when you say so. This way, Windows will be kept up to date and the updates will be a lot smaller, reducing the chance of something going wrong.

    So, what's infrarecorder?
