  1. Pinned Desktop Folder Problem


    So I've had an issue for a while with the Pinned desktop folder that appears when you right-click on Windows Explorer in the taskbar, where it wouldn't open the desktop folder, but nor would it allow me to delete it. Kinda like this: I press delete and nothing happens at all. And as you can see in the top-right, the desktop folder isn't actually in quick access at all, so that's weird.But when I add the desktop folder to quick access, it suddenly looks like this:And seemingly no matter which of the two desktop folders I then decide to unpin from the context menu, whichever one is left behaves

    Problem with desktop icons

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    This issue could be caused if the Desktop Icons are hidden.



    1. May I know, if you are aware of any recent changes made to the system after which you are facing this issue?
    2. Which version and edition of Windows is installed on the computer?


    I suggest you go through this articleShow, hide, or
    resize desktop icons
    follow the steps, if the icons are hidden, you should get it back.



    If you want to pin any icon to desktop you can check

    Pin apps and folders to the desktop or taskbar
    and you can easily access them from the desktop screen.



    If you still face the issue, reply to this post with more information.



    Hope it helps.

  4. Pinned Desktop Folder Problem

    Can't create pin for login. Pin stopped working

    Hi Kevin,

    To resolve your concern about creating pin to your computer, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Navigate to C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\NGC (click to get permission when prompted).
    • Delete the contents of that folder (delete everything in that folder, but leave that folder and everything above it).
    • Go back to settings, accounts, sign in options.
    • Your non-working pin will now be gone, and you can just click 'add a pin' and set it again.

    Let us know how it goes.
