    Persistent large icon in bottom left of screen, windows 10


    Hello


    Does anyone know what this is and how to remove it please? It seems to arise randomly and persists on all screens and apps. Disappears on restart but often then re appears after a few minutes.


    Many thanks for your help.

  2. Cannot put icons on the left side of my desktop

    Hi Charlie,

    You should be able to arrange your desktop icons however you want. Since you want them all aligned on the left side of your desktop screen, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Right-click at a blank area on your desktop.
    • Hover on View.
    • In the right pane, look for Auto arrange icons. If it's checked, make sure to uncheck it.
    • Hover again on View.
    • This time, check Align icons to grid. Your icons should now be aligned on the left side of the screen.

    Let us know if the issue persists so we can further assist you.

    Regards.
