HiAll my desktop icons have disappeared! They still exist, because if I click the >> next to desktop on the taskbar, they all come up vertically in a wide gray strip, but I can't drag & drop or otherwise get them onto the desktop. Can anyone help?ThanksWarthog
Try right clicking the middle of the screen.Arrange icons By.And make sure show desktop icons is ticked.
My daughters vista laptop does this from time to time,do as buteman says,if already ticked then untick come out of it then right click again pick arrange icons by and tick again,they should now appear
Thanks, but when I right click on the desktop, all options are grayed out!
Maybe time to run your security programs.
If XP try running "restore desktop icons and taskbar", 195 right column, click here .Instructions on running fixes at top.
1. Click Start > yourname > Desktop FolderAre all your icons in there?2. Delete the file C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\IconCache.dbIt will be recreated when you reboot and hopefully problem solved.xxxxx
rdave & ZeppelynThanks, but no joy with either of these.........
some ideas hereclick here
ZeppelynThis is likely to be the problem, but I don't know how to fix it. After I deleted C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\IconCache.db, it didn't appear to be recreated when I re-booted. Also, in thinking about it--I lost the icons after removing a small program called Iconoid from my computer in control panel>add/remove programs. Thanks again.
Try a system restore to before installing Iconid.
