    Is it possible to have the icons on the desktop, appear expanded when I click on them? The icons in the taskbar when I click on them appear expanded.

  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.

    Hello,

    Some configuration on your desktop settings must have been changed. To address your concern, follow the steps below:

    • Right-click anywhere on your desktop > Click View.
    • Make sure there's a check mark beside Show desktop icons.
    • Check if the desktop icons are now appearing.

    Let us know the status of the issue.
