  1. Desktop Icons keep flashing which temporarily freezes what I am doing


    When I open a File Explorer in Windows 10 Professional 64bit (OS Version 1903) and open my Pictures folder all of the desktop icons keep flashing which slows down my computer and whatever I'm doing. If I try typing every time the screen icons flash it freezes my typing input and I have to wait for a split second in between the flashes in order to type a few characters. I've tried a number of suggestions on the Internet but to no avail. Nothing so far works to fix this. HELP

    :)

  3. 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.
