  1. No desktop icon


    I'm using a MSI GF63 10th gen laptop with windows 11. Recently all my desktop icons have been vanished. I can't see or interact with them but they're there as I know from my file manager desktop section. If I add any new icon/shortcut it gets added but neither can I see it nor can I interact with it. I've tried the Theme>Desktop icon settings, doesn't work. Please help

    :)

  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.
