Computers often use shortcut links to make it easier for users to locate and open files.
These links are commonly placed in a folder easily accessible to users, such as a desktop folder.
When a shortcut is created, it is given directory information and an icon.
If the file associated with a shortcut is later moved, the shortcut may fail to locate the file.
When this problem occurs, you need to update the shortcut's directory information.
This process is often automated by operating systems, but in a some instances, you need to repair shortcuts manually

Right-click on a broken shortcut link's icon.
Select the "Properties" option. Locate the "Target" box and copy its information into your clipboard using the Ctrl and C keys.
Open the "My Computer" folder on your computer and paste the target information into the folder's address bar using the Ctrl and V keys.
If the address bar is not viewable, you may need to enable it in the folder's settings.
Find address bar options in the "View" menu under "Toolbars."
The file's target path folder will open.

Locate the file in the target path folder.
If the file is not present, the target path is inaccurate and likely the cause of the shortcut link error.
Locate the file in its correct folder.
Browse folders or search for the file by typing the file name into the "Start" menu.
After finding the file, open the properties of the shortcut link icon again.
Copy the file's correct path, from the containing folder's address bar, and paste it in to the "Target" box, replacing the incorrect link.
Another way to find a file's target path is by right clicking on the file and selecting Properties.
You can find accurate target information in the "Target" box, provided the icon is the original file icon and not a shortcut.

I cant work out how to move shortcut icons i.e Facebook app to a different home screen and how to delete shortcut items from a home screen?

On android, move a Icon/shortcut: press and hold the finger on the icon and drag it to where you want either on the same screen in a different spot or to another adjacent screen then lift finger.
To delete an icon/shorcut, do the same as for moving the icon but this time drag it to the 'Trash bin' symbol at bottom line/middle position of the screen: the icon should turn Red and lifting yiour finger will delete it.
It takes a bit of practice but it is quite easy and safe as you can always get the icon back from the application folder.

Hope it helps!

My laptop acer aspire5920 is not shutting down due to removal of my shutdown file from my laptop due to unknown reasons.

Hi dear,
Create Icons for Shutdown and Reboot If you find it annoying to access the Start Menu for shutting down or rebooting the computer, create a shutdown and reboot icon for the desktop.
Desktop Shutdown Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -s -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
Desktop Reboot Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -r -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
A Final Note: If you happen to be as fanatical as I am about having nothing on the desktop, drag the new icons into the Quick Launch area of the Taskbar.

then use it.

if not resolve it

then use following step ;-

click on start then go to RUN and type SFC /SCANNOW
press enter
this command recover all windows lost files, if it will ask windows CD then enter the windows disk.

bye take care
good luck

Lg Dare phone

I had purchased and am currently using the LG dare. The issue that I had with the icons apprearing on my main screen was that I was accidentally holding down and dragging the icons from my shortcut menu to the main screen. The easiest way to get rid of the icons from the main screen is to hold down the icon and drag it to the little arrow for the shortcut menu, and it should dissapear.( I just did it on mine so it should wok for you).
If that doesn't work, open you shortcuts menu, hit the set button and remove the icon from the shorcut menu (this should remove it from the main screen as well.)

good luck!
