Hiding Desktop Icons in Windows XPWith a good choice of wallpaper, your computer desktop can add an attractive, even artistic, element to your home or office. Eye-catching desktop wallpaper can be as decorative in its way as a painting or other wall hanging.



If you value the aesthetic potential of your desktop, you might like to enhance it even further by hiding the desktop icons.

I have an HP1110n....It acts like it is booting up, but I only see my screen background pic. No icons show up. The disk spins and is doing something, but it won't display ANY icons ! Help !


This happens when Explorer (the file manager - the program that makes all the files visible on the screen) doesn't starts at boot. Press Alt + Ctrl + Del to open Task Manager. Click File, click Run and type explorer. Click OK and the icons and the taskbar will appear. If it doesn't start or it's faulty in any way you will have to reinstall Windows.

My flash drive does not work. No flash drive icon


The most likely solution to this problem is to go to the computer manufacturers website and find the drivers for your flash drive and install them.

After this, your flash drive should work fine.

Using Windows 7.(Lost Desktop Icon).


Click the mouse "down" onto the "nearby" icon, and then "drag" that icon to move it somewhere a few inches away. The "missing" icon may now become visible.

Or, if you have used "auto-arrange desktop icons", look everywhere on your desktop for the "new" location of the icon.

Hot to retrieve my desk top icons


OK what OS are you using..I am assuming Xp or Vista...I am assuming XP

These are desktop icons not system tray icons right...

To resolve this behavior, turn on the Show Desktop Icons feature:
  1. Right-click the desktop.
  2. Point to Arrange Icons By.
  3. Click Show Desktop Icons.
  4. If that didn't work go here:
