Desktop Icons Slow to Appear

  Docking Bay 94 21:37 23 Aug 2004

If i'm sufing the web and want to view my Desktop i click on the 'Show Desktop' shortcut on the Taskbar.

The Desktop loads but all of the icons disappear, they appear eventually but it takes between 10 - 15 seconds.

Any suggestions, thanks

It could be just a case of increasing the size of your Icon Cache. You can do it by editing the registry or use a product like Cacheman from click here

Hang on for a while to see if anyone has any alternative suggestions.
