  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.
