Hi,

On the same screen open the task manager by pressing ctrl+alt+del key on your keyboard and then from the task manager click on a new task button, then in the dialogue box type explorer.exe and hit enter key on your keyboard.

This should bring back your desktop and all your icons back to normal usage.

How to reduce ddessktop icon size?


hey wassup

theres two ways you can go at this.

1. right click on an open area on ur desktop and just adjust the icons when u hover over the [view] option

2.make sure ur desktop is the only thing visible and give it one click on an open space just to make sure nothing is selected. then hit ctrl+&
at this point to test if it's working. hold ctrl then start to move your mousewheel on your mouse and the icons will start to all magically increase and decrease in size

now option #1 is a bit more easy and its static
while option#2 is a bit more dynamic and you can really make your icons really big or really small. it's up to you.

How do i put gmail on desks top for quick sign in


1. Open a web browser (examples: Firefox, Internet Explorer). Be certain it is NOT maximized! (in other words, make sure you can still see an open spot on your desktop).
2. Click in the URL window, type "google", then press CTRL + ENTER.
3. (Notice the tiny lock icon in the left-most position of the URL window). Left-click on the lock icon & Hold the left-click mouse button down.
4. Drag & drop the link onto your desktop.
5. It will automatically be created and renamed to GMail.

note: this will work for creating any shortcut from a web address, not just GMail.

How can i retrieve my mail icon


The use of desktop icons has served to simplify opening and using programs in Microsoft Windows.
With a simple click of the mouse, an entire program can be opened.

Unfortunately those desktop icons can also be deleted, sometimes accidentally or sometimes by the desktop cleaning utility that runs in Windows, but there is a simple process to recover desktop icons.

Just follow these steps.

Click it without a ticket.
To restore lost desktop icons, first place your mouse anywhere in a blank area on your desktop. Once you have placed your cursor in an unused area of the desktop, right click.

Check the pop up.
Once you have right-clicked your mouse in the unused area of your desktop you will receive a pop up menu or prompt.

Choose "Properties" by left clicking it with your mouse.

Grab that tab. Once you have clicked on "Properties" you will receive a dialog box.
Click on the tab labeled "Desktop."

Customize it.
Once you have clicked the "Desktop" tab choose "Customize Desktop" which will prompt another dialog box to open.

From there click on the "General" tab.

Restore order.

After you have clicked the "General" tab you will see a list of icons.
Simply choose the icons you want restored or placed on the desktop and then click "OK."

That's it.

You have now successfully restored your desktop icons.

No Icons show up


When you have your desktop up & displayed, click the right mouse button & it will bring up a menu. Hover your mouse above the "Arrange Icons By" option and it will bring up a sub menu. If the "Show Desktop Icons" option does not have a check mark to the left of it, that is your problem. If there is no check mark, navigate down to it and click on it with your left mouse button and that will make your icons display.
