Try to right click on the desk top/ properties/ desktop tab at top/ click customize desktop on bottom/ web tab on top. If you have a theme make sure that is checked. Un check "My Current Home Page" if it's checked and see if that helps. If not try to do a system restore to before this problem started.

You may activate your desktop again by right clicking your display, click Properties. When the desktop button shows up, choose a background then apply. If it still doesn't show up, you may need to reinstall your windows software.

How to add icons to desktop ?


Assuming you are on Windows 10... if right click on the desktop in a place where there are no icons, you will get a menu.

If you are showing no icons on your screen at all, hover over the View option. A sub-menu will show. make sure that "Show Desktop Icons" is checked.

If you are trying to have the common desktop icons displayed of "Computer", "User Filed", "Network", etc...
the bottom entry on the menu says, "Personalize..."

Click on that, click on "Themes" on the left, click on "Desktop Icon Settings" on the right, then click the check box for every icon you want on the dialog that comes up, click Apply and OK as needed to exit the settings.

If you are on a different version of Windows, the instructions are very similar, you may have to scout around a bit to find how they work in an older version of Windows.

Rocstor pro 850 doesn't show up on mac desktop


Did you use this drive on the Mac previously? I've had problems with some drives formatted under windows that were not seen on the Mac.

If you previously used it on a windows machine you may have to reformat it with the Mac.

Hopefully, You still have a Windows machine available to you. First Place the data on the drive onto a Windows machine. Reformat the drive on your Mac. Copy the information back on the drive. It should now work for you.

Program Icon does not show up on my desktop


Click on Windows button. In the "Start Search" column just about the button type in "Office" and you'll be given a list of all programs that have the word "Office" in the name. Right click on the program and select "Open file Location".
In the folder find the shortcut icon you want to be in the desktop. Right click it and select "Create Shortcut". An error window will appear. It will say "Window cannot create a shortcut here.
Do you want the shortcut to be placed on the desktop instead"
. Select "Yes"
