    desktop icons


    I have been putting my pc and recycle bin icons on my desktop via settings, personalisation, themes, desktop icons and they are not there. I have tried resetting to default also and restarting, and the recycle bin nor anything else shows up. How can I get these icons to show up on the desktop please?

    :)

  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.
