    Desktop Icons


    Hello,
    I recently uninstalled IE11 as I do not use it, however after I found that Desktop shortcut icons I had created no longer worked and I could not restore them unless I re- installed IE11.
    The icons in question were created from Firefox, is this normal or am I missing something.
    Thanx


    :)

  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.

    Hi, it depends what the shortcuts were for.

    If they had a literal path to IE, and you've removed IE via e.g. the Control Panel, Turn Windows Features on or off, then they wouldn't work.

    If it's an association problem, and the association remains with IE, then you would need to change the relevant association appropriately.

    To help further we'd need to know what the shortcuts were for: e.g. details from rt click, properties, shortcut tab.
    Also the icon may be helpful. Please post relevant screenshots. Thanks.
    To post a screenshot please use the Insert Image icon above your post to the left of the video icon. Thanks.

    Thanks, it was an association problem, just had to change "open with" in properties to "internet browser" and everything works ok.
