A reader has an issue with icons behaving badly:
“All of a sudden all my desktop icons were rearranged and also were put on my tray. I would like to remove them. when i deleted them it also deleted the icons on the desktop. I want to keep it on the desktop.”
Does it look like this?
Your icons have migrated to a taskbar menu. You may have accidentally clicked on something. Let’s fix it. Start by right-clicking on a blank spot on your desktop. Choos View. Then make sure the box next to View Desktop icons is ticked.
Then right-click on your taskbar and select ‘Toolbars’ and uncheck Desktop.
