    Desktop error


    Hello,


    I have had this laptop for about 2 years now, and since lat year every so often when i unplug it the screen will be condenced to the top left corner and be all fuzzy and so to fix that i just have to plug it back in to charge. However now i have a bigger probleme, i left my laptop open while i went to do sdomething and when i got back i noticed that the desktop had incorperated itself into a back layer of the screen so that no matter what i open i can always see my desktop in the top half of the screen it is very worrying and annoying... If anyone has a fix cause i cannot find one, i can restart my computer and even unplug it and nothing changes so i dont know. Thanks if you awnser.

    :)

    desktop agent tray error message in windows 10

    I tried the following suggestion. When I got to step 4, the list provided no checkmarks to uncheck and the icon for Desktop Agent Tray was a checkmark in a yellow circle. nothing happened when I clicked on the yellow circle with the checkmark. the title
    on the list was Desktop Agent Tray(2) Clicking on the title opened a title beneath the Desktop Agent Tray (2) which did not have the (2)

    the publisher of both titles was CenturyLink Inc and the status for the entry with the (2) was enabled and the status of the other entry was blank. Changing the status to disabled did nothing. the Start up impact was listed as high. There was another
    entry under the two Desktop Agent Tray titles There was an icon then Dw20 with a high start up impact. No where was there a place to uncheck or delete. So far the box which lists the error disappears and there seems to be no problem. I just wonder why
    it is there,



    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Appreciate your interest in using Windows 10.

    Desktop Tray Agent is a program used by Qwest to update their installer when setting up DSL (Digital Subscribers Line) based connections to computers. I suggest you to follow the steps below and check for the status:

    • Press Windows key + R, type msconfig.
    • Go to Startup tab.
    • Click on Open Task Manager.
    • Uncheck Desktop Agent Tray from the list.
    • Click on Apply and OK.

    Hope the information is helpful. Feel free to
    write to us for any other assistance with Windows, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    windows 10 deleted my desktop files

    Step 1 - I upgraded to Win 10 and lost all my files on Desktop.

    Step 2 - Found the files in Network - USers- Desktop

    copied all files again to desktop.

    Step 3- Restarted my machine again and lost desktop files again.

    Step 4 - As suggested did the following as listed below but dont find my files.

    • Press “Windows + E”, open This PC/Computer
    • Open Local Disc C, open Windows.old
    • Click on Users, select your User name
    • Go to desktop folder
    Cant find my files. Why is Win 10 deleted files again and again from Desktop ?.
