If you still have the icons on the laptop screen but not on TV then you have opened a second desktop on the TV.

Right click a blank area of the desktop and select properties and look under settings tab to see what you are displaying on each screen.

have had a look at the screen settings and they are the same as the primary screen.
What i have noticed is the arrow on the laptop screen is on the rightside and when moved off the screen it ends up on the tv screen.

If you want icons you have to change them round in Display settings on which comes first. You should see two monitors in your Display Graphics adapter in Control Panel

It running as a Dual Monitor, you can only have Icons on one this is like a Hard Drive running as Master other as Slave. It just expands the Desktop
