Lock icons on my gateways computer


Are you talking about the Desktop Icons? Assuming you are, right click on an empty space on the Desktop, click on View, and put a check by Align Icons To Grid. If you are talking about the Taskbar...right click on an empty space on the Taskbar, and then put a check mark by Lock Taskbar...now all your icons are in prison.

Hi, I have a HP Mini 210-1170 netbook. After turning it on, the screen is at a desktop screen, but no tool bars nor icons are shown. The curser moves, so I don't think it's frozen... but I also don't...


Press Ctrl+Alt+Del - the Task Manager should pop up. Click File, click Run, type explorer , click OK and the icons and the taskbar should appear.

I have a Compac computer that has Windows XP installed (SP2), when I start up the computer, the Windows XP will not run correctly. Once it seems to be opening Windows, my computer screen just looks blank...


When you are on the blank screen try to press CTRL+ALT+DEL on your keyboard at the same time. it should bring up the task manager window. now, click on FILE > New Task Run > Type in EXPLORER.EXE and press Ok. it should show you your Taskbar, desktop wallpaper, desktop icons

No icons, start menu, taskbar, explorer not working


backup your data and do a repair install - might take a while longer but at least you know it will clear any issues.

there are a number of things you can do to fix it but will most likely take a lot longer

My dell desktop monitor screen. The screen shows no icon so I can not try any repairs. I'm on my laptop trying to find a solution.


Pls right click on the Taskbar and select Show the Desktop. If this cannot solve the problem, maybe your windows is corrupted. Need to reinstall the windows.

TASKBAR PROBLEM


*Right click the taskbar and make sure the "Lock the Taskbar" option is NOT ticked

click and hold a blank space of the taskbar and move the cursor to where you would like it to be sitting so if you would like it to run across the bottom of the screen move the cursor while still holding down to the bottom of the screen, this should make it look more like what it should :)

Thanks!
