  1. Missing folders and icons from desktop screen


    Hello,
    I have a problem, after uninstalling Blizzard launcher, some of my desktop folders and icons disappeared.
    I don't know what happened, everything worked until then.

    Can anyone help me, please?

    :)

  2. Missing Desktop Icon Text

    You can't rename or even create new folders, etc ... The icons are there I just took a screenshot to show what I was talking about. The icons are unclickable

    Hi Richard,

    To help you better provide us with the information below.

    • Which build is currently running on your computer?
    • Did you make any recent software changes on your computer?

    As an initial step I would suggest you Right click on Desktop Window> View > Check Shows desktop icons, check if the desktop icons are back on desktop.

    Check if the Icons or files are available in the My Documents>Desktop folder, check if icons are visible in the folder.

    Get back to us with the updated status of the issue for further assistance.

    Yes, they are; however, when I right click on the "blue sphere" icon to change it and browse to the corresponding folder inside the Steam folder, it lets me go through all the steps, but the blue sphere remains. *Confused Missing folders and icons from desktop screen :confused:
