Try this:

  • right-click on the desktop
  • put your mouse over "Arrange Icons By" until it expands - in the expanded box there is an option that says "show desktop icons". If there is no check mark beside it, then your icons will be hidden. Just click on it and that should fix you up.

My on screen display has gone small


What do you mean has gone small? You mean your icons are smaller?

Try changing your screen resolution. Right Click on an open space on the desktop and select Properties. When the Display Properties window opens select the Appearance tab. Look down at the bottom and you can make sure your Font Size is Normal, if not change it to Normal. Click the Settings tab and change your screen resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons. Size 1024x768 is what most people use.

You can also get to the display properties to perform the steps above by clicking Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings/Control Panel. Look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open it and the display properties window will open.

If you are using Windows 7 you can also just click Start and in the search box type Screen Resolution. Look up at the top for the search results and click on Screen Resolution.

If you can't get it back to the way it was you can try doing a System Restore. System Restore allows you to select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having problems. So if you display went small yesterday, then select a restore point before yesterday.

System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected). To start System Restore click Start/Program/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore then select a data and time before you started having the issue.

If you are using Windows 7 you can just click Start then in the search box type System Restore and look up at the returned search results and select System Restore.

System Recovery on the other hand deletes everything and sets your system back to when your first purchased it.

My desktop is blank all icons are gone with icon tray !


- Open Task Manager
- Terminate Explorer.exe (may of hung on start up) on the Processes Tab
- Back on the Applications Tab, click on New Task and type explorer after about a minute does the start menu and windows bar come back?
- If so download all the latest virus defs for your AV software and also the latest (and free) spybot search and destroy 1.6.2 - do a sweep for both spyware and software and remove all and reboot your PC.

This should help you - if not joy I would boot into Safe Mode and look at a system restore point. Also look for any unusual processes that are running in Task Manager - or ones you don't recognize since you last looked at them - if one looks dodgy, do a google search on it to see if its harmful and should be killed.

Good Luck
