  1. Desktop Icons Missing From Desktop Folder


    I was just starting to back up my C-drive important files in Windows 10 when I realized that there are several desktop folders, including a OneDrive folder, and all of them are missing several desktop icons. I have read read different threads on this subject and tried a couple of fixes and none of them accomplished anything. There must be a simple bug in Windows 10 to have caused this. I have done all the latest updates, so that's not a factor. Can anyone figure this out?

    :)

  3. Desktop icons missing?

    For some reason, between last night, when I OC'd, and sometime today, my desktop icons disappeared. I've tried downclocking to stock clocks, and enabling/disabling desktop icons does nothing. *Frown Desktop Icons Missing From Desktop Folder :(

    I've tried restarting, it doesn't help either. *Frown Desktop Icons Missing From Desktop Folder :(

    You can't rename or even create new folders, etc ... The icons are there I just took a screenshot to show what I was talking about. The icons are unclickable
