  1. Takes three tries to login before my desktop shows, every time


    So for some reason, ever since the October update finally re-released (though I've HAD it since early October, maybe even longer) and patches have addressed most of the issues, I've been having issues logging in. My PIN is correct, and it doesn't give me an error message... that's not it. Instead of loading my desktop, I get a black screen. If I move my mouse, the cursor shows up. But that's it. I've waited, thinking it was still loading for whatever reason... Nope. I have to press Ctrl+Alt+Del to choose the option to log out, then attempt to log back in, two more times, before the desktop finally loads, immediately on the third try, every time, without fail. Anyone else have this issue? Should I just do a clean install of Windows since it's essentially running a Frankenstein "Oct/Nov/Oct-retry" update?

    :)

  2. No icons on desktop after startup only


    EagleEye,

    Welcome to the forum!

    Have you tried toggling the Desktop icons on and off?

    • Right-click on an open area of the Desktop
    • Click: View
    • If Show Desktop icons is already checked, uncheck it.
    • Repeat the above steps a time or two.
    • Check: Show Desktop icons

    Desktop Icons - Hide or Show in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    If no go on the above, right-click on the empty Desktop, and create a file.

    Let us know if they come back on.

  3. Windows 10 Login Crash Loop

    Hi David,



    • Which screen are you referring to?
    • Are you able to login to Desktop?
    • Are you able to see the login screen?


    The power icon referred in the steps is present at the login screen. If you are able to see the login screen where you enter the password to go to Desktop, then you need to follow those steps. These steps to be followed if you are able to reach to
    login screen but unable to go to Desktop.



    Please provide us more information related to the issue so that we can assist you further.
