  2. taskbar icons disappear and then reappear

    That could mean there was a change detected which needed to be handled by all your active tasks.

    That suggests that the current focus was most likely on the Desktop (e.g. assuming you have a lot of icons on your Desktop). Please try to be sure that Narrator gets focus on things that you are interested
    in. Again, it may be necessary to practise using the tools before you actually need to try to understand something that is less clear.

    Good luck

  3. 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.

    Hope this helps. Keep us updated with the status of the issue to continue assisting you further.

    Thank you.
