    desktop icon disappear


    windows 10 starts with a black screen (with few locked applications to task bar & tray)
    no right click so I can't ask to show desktop icons). It seems that the black screen is covering the desktop because playing with the settings (personalization etc) show all icons for a second and gets back to initial black screen.
    How can I recover desktop with all its icons?
    thank you

    :)

    Desktop Icons disappeared

    Hi Kinsley,

    • Are you referring to the desktop icons?
    • When did the icons disappear? Did you make any changes to the system Settings?

    It's possible that your device is in Tablet mode. I suggest you to turn it off and check if the icons appear. To do so, select the
    Action center icon on the taskbar (the little message box next to the date and time), and then select
    Tablet mode to turn it on or off.

    Also refer the following thread which discusses about a similar issue.
