  3. Icons have disappeared

    Hi Robert,

    Missing icons after a recent Windows update can be due to the changes made in your PC Settings while updating.
    Before we proceed with any troubleshooting steps, we suggest that you make sure that
    Show Desktop icons is enabled. Here's how:

    • Right-click on the empty area on your desktop.
    • Choose View and you should see Show Desktop icons option.
    • Try checking and unchecking Show Desktop icons option a few times but remember to leave this option checked.

    Should the issue persists, you can turn off tablet mode. Windows 10 is designed to work with touchscreen devices and touchscreen monitors and it comes with tablet mode that optimizes Windows 10 for touchscreen devices. apparently using tablet mode can sometimes
    cause your icons to disappear so let’s see how we can turn off tablet mode. Follow the steps below to turn off tablet mode:

    • Open Settings > System and choose Tablet mode from the left.
    • Locate the Make Windows more touch-friendly when using your device as a tablet and set it to off.
    • Your desktop icons should now appear. If that doesn’t work, try turning on and off Tablet mode a few times.

    Keep us posted on how it goes.

  4. Sound icon disappears and does not come come back

    Sound coming from both speaker and headphone

    Hi Abhigyan,

    This issue may occur due to damaged drivers, incompatible drivers, sound settings, missing updates, and problems with your sound card. I suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.

    Method 1: Let's first run Audio Troubleshooter and check.


    • Press the ‘Windows + W’ key on the keyboard.

    • Type troubleshooter in the search box and then press enter.

    • Click hardware and sound and click on ‘Playing Audio’.
    Method 2: If the issue persists, I would suggest you to make sure the default audio device is set correctly.


    • Press Windows key + X and click on
      control panel.

    • Type Sound in the search box and click on
      Sound.

    • Click on Playback tab.

    • Right-click on Microphone and select
      Set as default device.

    • Click on Apply and then Ok.
    Method 3: If the issue persists, I would suggest you to download and install latest audio driver from the computer manufacturer website. Check if it helps.

    Hope this information helps.
