  1. Logged into two computers - Deleteing desktop shortcuts


    Hello all!


    I have a desktop and a laptop and I am logged into both via my Microsoft Account. Currently, if I delete a desktop shortcut on one computer, it also deletes on the other when I don't want it to. If I change the desktop background on one computer, it will change it on the other. One of the computers is a gaming rig, and the other is a crappy old laptop, and I don't want unusable gaming shortcuts on my laptop.


    How do I stop this from happening? I hope I was clear enough in describing my issue!!

    :)

    One of the computers i maintain has a few of the desktop shortcuts disappearing now and then. It runs windows 7, and has a shitload of shortcuts on the desktop.

    Any idea what might cause this?

  3. Desktop Shortcut Icons

    Hi Mik-Dav,

    The desktop shortcut created for a specific website should bear the website's actual logo. With what you've experienced, there could be something wrong with how the shortcut was created.

    If you've created the shortcut by selecting Create shortcut, then we suggest that you try the other way, that is by dragging the website icon that appears in the address bar to your desktop. Follow these steps:

    • Using Internet Explorer, access a website.
    • Once the website opens, you will see its icon in the address bar.
    • Click and drag the icon on your desktop.

    The website shortcut bearing its actual logo should now be saved on your desktop.

    Let us know if you need further help.

    Regards.

    Desktop Shortcut Icons

    I tried using Edge that comes with the computer and I can see the logo you are talking about. When I try to drag it to the desktop you can see that I have it but as soon as I drop it the window opens rather than putting the shortcut icon on the desktop.
