    Is there anyway to hide the "Network," "This PC," and User folder on the desktop?

    It's not really hurting anything by being there, but I'm just curious.

  2. copying to disc

    In Windows 10 the My Computer icon is called “This PC”.

    If this icon is missing in your computer -

    Right-click on the desktop and choose Personalize, then click on “Change Desktop Icons” on the left-hand side of the screen

    In the Desktop Icons panel you can choose which of the built-in icons to show on the desktop: > Check Computer

    Windows 10 Desktop Icons Re-Arrange - Possible way to restore.

    My desktop icons have, intermittently, re-arranged to the left of the screen, more than a few times, very annoying.

    Try these steps:

    Right click on an empty part of the desktop.

    Select View.

    Ensure both Auto Arrange Icons & Align Icons to Grid are unchecked.

    Uncheck Show desktop icons. (Desktop icons should disappear)

    Re-Check Show desktop icons

    In my case, the desktop icons re-appeared and in their prior locations.

    Good luck.
