When I download a file - the most recent being the CC Cleaner update - the icon for the exe file does not appear on the desktop to where I've directed it. However, on re-booting, it appears. Can anyone explain - have I got a setting wrong?
That worked thanks VoG™ - the same thing was happening when I cut a downloaded file from Desktop to My Downloads and whilst it "transferred" to this latter folder, the Icon remained on Desktop. Doing a refresh as you suggested did get rid of it but I never used to have this problem - do I have a setting wrong somewhere?
Yes, ACOLYTE, I have it checked. I have tried various combinations of Auto Arrange, Align to Grid & Lock Web Items to Desktop but none has cured the problem - I keep having to refresh for the delation or addition to show.
I've tried your two links ACOLYTE and have also deleted the Icon Cache. Still no change but thanks for your help. I'm now trying sfc /scannow although I think I did this in January, when the problem first arose, without success.
