  2. Remove Linux Desktop Icons

    I am not sure whether this will work (Ubuntu does not have icons like that on the desktop by default), but I suggest opening the trash bin and sweeping the icons into the window showing the trash bin.

  3. Windows 10 - Icons appear on Desktop but not Desktop Folder

    Hello Daniel,

    Thank you for posting your concern here in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    From the description of the issue, I understand that desktop icon shortcuts does not appear in the Desktop folder in Windows 10.

    Before proceeding, please check if the same issue occur when logged in through a different user account.

    Ref:

    This issue may happen due to system file corruption. I suggest you to run System file checker. System File checker (SFC) scan is done to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Kindly follow
    the below given steps:


    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated Command prompt.

    • In Command prompt type
      sfc/scannow
      and press enter.
    • Restart the computer.
    If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state, then I suggest you to try the following steps:


    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.

    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:

      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.

    Hope the above information was helpful. if you need further information, feel free to write to us and we would be happy to help you.
