    Freshly installed Win11 22H2 on my 3600/b450/1060gtx machine. For some reason Windows didn't install any update whatsoever during its installation. Before using windows update, I decided to manually install the latest driver for every component. To prevent any conflicts i disabled windows update temporarily. I did a reset each time a driver asked me to. I went AMD chipset, Nvidia Display, Razer mouse/keyboard, Realtek Lan, Realtek Audio.Well, during Realtek Audio, something very odd happened. The Home Icon you can see it where quick access used to be, appeared on my desktop all of the sudden

    Desktop Icons vanished


    To : DrAS,

    Just to elaborate what Berton has told you..........that you are on Tablet Mode.
    If it is what Berton has suggested, you can have your desktop back. Follow steps below................
    Bottom right next to Time, there is a notification icon > click it > click Tablet mode.
    You should have your desktop back.

    Desktop Icons vanished


    Good evening

    As of today without my apparent intervention:

    1. Desktop icons have vanished (cannot right click on desktop)
    2. Taskbar icons have vanished (got them back as right-click works on taskbar)
    3. Cannot minimise window (browser, Outlook etc)

    Is this an 'update' or have I carelessly altered something?

    Many thanks

    Windows Security Center Icon vanished

    Version 2004

    Greetings people,

    My Windows Security Centre Icon has vanished. Every time I boot it will appear for half a second then vanish and not return. I've run System File Checker and there are no errors. It's switched on in task bar settings.

    Any suggestions?
