Re: I just want to reset everything

As Patcht1313 said, if the matter is all about My Computer and My Documents icons then here is how you can make them seen on you desktop...................................................

  • Click Start
  • On the menu, right click My Computer
  • Then in the drop menu, Click Show on the desktop..........
My Computer icon will now be seen on the desktop.

For the case of My Document icon, do as you did for My Computer icon.

I hope this will work if your problem is all about icons.

Re: I just want to reset everything

If you mean you want to reset everything then i'm going to assume that you want to reformate your pc. And as far as your icons go i'm going to assume that your talking about your My Computer and My Documents icons and if you want thouse on your desk top do the following:

Right click the taskbar and go to properties
Next click the start menu tab
Choose classic start menu and your icons should appear on the desktop

But this is only my assumtion as to what you mean, as Fusiondc said please elaborate a little more so i can help you out with this ;)

Here's how to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop

Instead of going to the start menu, choosing shutdown, then waiting for the computer to shut all the programs down, you can create a shortcut on the desktop to do it quickly. You can create a shutdown, restart, or a logoff icon on your desktop which will work a lot quicker than using the usual buttons in the start menu.
Here's how to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop

1. Go to your blank desktop
2. Right click on a blank space and a menu will appear
3. Choose New from the menu
4. Then choose Shortcut
5. Where it says type the location of the item type in shutdown.exe -s
6. Then press next
7. Now enter a name for your icon. Mine is called SHUTDOWN NOW
8. Press next
9. The Shutdown shortcut will be on your desktop

Different combination you can type in when creating a shortcut to shutdown, restart, or logoff.

Shutdown.exe -s

Shutsdown your computer in 30 seconds and will close all programs and ask you to save all work.

shutdown.exe -r
Restarts your computer in 30 seconds.

shutdown.exe -l
This one will logoff your computer back to the welcome screen where you will need to login again.

shutdown.exe -s -t 1
Shutsdown your computer in one second. the -t 1 tells it how long to wait. (one second in this case) You can put -t 10 or even -t 1120.

shutdown.exe -s -t 15 -c "Goodbye you idiot"
This is my favorite code. It will shutdown in 15 seconds and have a message in the box saying "Goodbye you idiot"
The -c "bla bla bla" stands for a comment.


* to stop the computer from shutting down type shutdown /a into the run box located in the start menu..
* -f will force everything to close immediately without asking to save anything.

Create Shortcut for Shutdown / Hibernate / Restart

Right Click on the desktop
Goto New
click on Shortcut
Type location of the Item as "shutdown -s -t 5" Without quotes
Here Shutdown -s is the command to shutdown the computer and -t shows you the time in seconds before shutdown

Similarly you can create shortcuts for Restart by replacing the -s with -r and for hibernate simply replace it with a -h

note: you can change the delay timer as per your need

ENJOY !!!!

My laptop had been bad for over a year, so, i just fixed it (changed the motherboard actually). Now, the shortcuts on the desktop wont work except i go through program files to open the programs. Do you...

Go to and download
"LNK (Shortcut) File Association Fix" (Restores Default Shortcut Behavior). Extract the reg and double-click it. (But when extracting, don't put it on your desktop 'cause it won't work!).
I hope it helps

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"

I can,t connect to internet thru my orange shortcut only thru mozilla firefox

At least that proves all is good with the actual connection to the ISP. Have you got two icons on the desktop? Is your 'orange shortcut' the mozilla shortcut or is it for another browser..? Like IE? If the orange shortcut is for another browser or whatever.. highlight it with a left mouse click & right mouse select it & go to 'properties'. It should show (under shortcut) something like this:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE"
This points to the actual executable that really runs the program. You could go down the directory structure & attempt to start the program directly from that executable. If it "points" to the wrong executable, then you need to modify the shortcut. You need to compare the two internet browser shortcuts & try to discover whats wrong. Both shortcuts should point to their respective exe files, to start the actual program.

I realise this is probably sounding complicated, so if you are not sure, then post any other questions here.. But as above, you do have access to the internet, so this is not a serious problem to solve. Let me know how you get on.. Rgds,

The desktop is empty

First a question; you say you only have the background and cursor does that mean literally everything else is gone including the start button in the lower left and the task manager in the lower right? Or do you mean that all your icons, shortcuts, folders and files you had on your desktop are gone?
