    Very strange desktop on completely fresh install


    Hi
    I just re-installed win10 pro on to my X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING-CF PC
    when it booted to desktop I had several files that I recognised from my old setup on the desktop.
    Then I noticed that they seemed to be updating from the cloud as they had the same symbols you get next to onedrive items.
    arrows and clouds etc so I checked my onedrive but these particular items were not in onedrive!

    So one item was a txt file that was a note from a stickie. So I wondered if the new windows stickies are being stored on the cloud?
    the other few items were snip and sketch images that I had taken on my old setup.

    So I'm assuming that these are also stored in the cloud.

    Can anyone confirm this for me as it was something I was unaware of!

    Thanks

    Mike

    :)

    Insurgency wont install and run for me....

    I have played and have fully updated CS and Half life 2....
    I am using the newest client and installed the SDK.

    I am completely blown away, if i click the desktop icon it starts the sdk and then closes, and it doesn't show up in my game list...

    First mod attempt install here, followed the directions step by step on the mods website...

    Any ideas?

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.


    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Very strange desktop on completely fresh install :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

    HELP 5870 Issues:CCC resets settings on restart, Partial desktop, Lock in 2D clocks!

    I didn't understand! Are suggesting this as a prelude to re-installing the CCC again?
    If yes, it's the case of fresh windows installation which I already did..
    If no, removing CCC will result in the desktop switching to a horrible low rez (800x600) and there'll be no black border and no partial desktop!!
    I did try removing only the monitors' drivers, as I said in my first post (Step 3), but I guess It wasn't clear..Sorry! English is not my first language, you know!
