  2. Desktop Icons disappeared

    Hi Kinsley,

    • Are you referring to the desktop icons?
    • When did the icons disappear? Did you make any changes to the system Settings?

    It's possible that your device is in Tablet mode. I suggest you to turn it off and check if the icons appear. To do so, select the
    Action center icon on the taskbar (the little message box next to the date and time), and then select
    Tablet mode to turn it on or off.

    Also refer the following thread which discusses about a similar issue.

    Windows 10 - Desktop icons disappeared - I may have hit something that is causing my problem

    Hope this helps. Keep us updated with the status of the issue to continue assisting you further.

    Thank you.

  3. Windows Update does it again: Disappearing Desktop Icons

    Hello

    After I updated a ton of security updates with care to only update the certain critical ones no anything else.


    The hardcoded icons have disappeared during reboot, those icons that you drag out of start menu and it automatically creates it, and the network icon that you right-click in the start menu and select "show on desktop"

    But there was also a freeze during the update process, when rebooted it re-do the stuff that it does at boot so i think it was fine , but the icon thing happend, it always has to be something.

    I so hate the windows update, I haven't updated for half a year and now i did a manual careful update and I think i will never do it again for win7 EVER on this PC.

    Icons keep disappearing after a certain period of days while several sessions passed. Let's say every 5 days or a week, 3 times now. I want to have my system stuff out like Control panel, add remove programs, all the sys stuff.


    EDIT: Exact icons are "network" "sound" and "programs and features"

    Found something it can be certain settings for icon cleanup

    W10 program icons disappear from desktop on re-boot

    Desktop Icons keep on Disappearing after every re-boot.

    Hi Rishad,

    Many thanks for responding and below are my answers:

    Method 1

    1. All the icons on the desktop are disappearing after every reboot

    2. Didn't install any hardware, however not 100% sure as to software. Looking in control panel, nothing obvious just updates

    3-8 Done all the steps

    Result = Issue still persist

    Method 2

    Created a new user (not admin) and all desktop icons are displayed as they should be (tested few times)

    What would you suggest next step?

    Thanks,

    Isaac
