  2. Desktop Icons disappeared

    Hi Kinsley,

    • Are you referring to the desktop icons?
    • When did the icons disappear? Did you make any changes to the system Settings?

    It's possible that your device is in Tablet mode. I suggest you to turn it off and check if the icons appear. To do so, select the
    Action center icon on the taskbar (the little message box next to the date and time), and then select
    Tablet mode to turn it on or off.

    Also refer the following thread which discusses about a similar issue.

    Thank you.

  3. 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.
