How do I get my icons on after computer has gone to sleep?


If you are using xp try going to control panel, change the desktop background to anything else in the offered menu, click apply. Then do the same thing again and select the background you normally use. That will sometimes get the icons back up.

Click "start", then "control panel". Find and right click on "Toolbar and Start menu", and open. In the window you want check marks next to "lock toolbar", "keep the taskbar on top of other windows",and, "show quick launch" then click apply, then ok. Now click on the "start menu" tab and make sure there is a dot in the circle next to start menu, click apply, then ok.Now click on the "toolbars" tab and make sure there are check marks next to "desktop" and "start menu", click apply, then ok.

You can also accsess your programs by clicking on start, click on "all programs", scroll to the program you want, then double or right click on to open.

The appearance of my icons changed, they now have a small blue square with two right arrow symbyls in the square.


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Windows XP
    Change Default Icons in Windows XP
  1. Step 1 Start Windows in your normal fashion.
  2. Step 2 Click the Start menu and select the "My Computer" option. Alternately, you can double-click the "My Computer" desktop icon if you've enabled it to appear on the desktop.
  3. Step 3 Double-click on your hard drive to open the directory.
  4. Step 4 Find the program for which you wish to change the associated icon. You'll need to know its location on the hard drive. If you don't know where it is, you can use the Start menu "Search" feature to locate it.
  5. Step 5 Right-click on the file, and click the "Properties" menu option. This will open the Properties menu for the file.
  6. Step 6 Click the "Change Icon" button. If there is no "Change Icon" button, you will need to create a desktop icon instead. To do so, cancel out of the Properties menu and right-click the file again. This time, select "Send to -> Desktop (create shortcut)."
  7. Step 7 Click on one of the icons that appears in the list. If the icon you want isn't on the list, click the "Browse" button to search for more icons.
  8. Step 8 Click "OK" once you've chosen the icon you'd like to use.
  9. Step 9 Click "Apply" to confirm your changes, and then click "OK" to close the window.
  10. Step 10 Wait a moment to see the icon change. There are times, like when a lot of system resources are in use, when icon changes can take a moment to appear.

well once you find the program in "All Programs" in your start menu can "Create a shortcut" by right clicking the program under the start program and selected create a shortcut or "Pin to the start menu" or If you have a different problem just post another comment. I'm assuming the icon is gone from the desktop? or your homepage. (Are you talking about a website?)

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?
