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.

All my icons including browser have disappeared off the desktop after shutting down and re-booting. How do I fix this and stop it from happening again?


What you can do is place the icons back on to the desktop by dragging from start-menu and simply creating a shortcut. Then restart the computer and tell me if the problem still exists.

Hard disk icon disappeared from desktop


To add the hard disk icon back onto your desktop, first click the "Finder" button in the dock. It is the dark and light smily face icon at the end of the dock.

Next, click the "Finder" menu item at the top of the screen and then "Preferences". In the "Finder Preferences" window that opens, click the "General" button. From there you can select what system items appear on your desktop. You can click "Hard disks" to re-add the hard disk icon.

DELL INSPIRON 1300 DESKTOP ICONS and Taskbar flashes on and off gone most of time


Try a system restore if it will allow you. If not you may need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

System Administrator


As for logging in as Administrator try leaving the password area blank and that should get you in. As for the Control Panel Icon, if it's not showing up in your start menu you can open it's properties and through the customization function you can add it again.

"My Handheld PC" and "Recycle Bin" icons disappeared


This problem is experienced after following performance suggestions found in third-party documentation, on web sites, or in newsgroups. These suggestions instruct users to remove all folders from the desktop of Handheld PC Pro device in order to speed screen-repaint rates. Applying these same steps on a Handheld PC 2000 device causes all desktop icons to disappear. Microsoft has documented this issue (in Q289674): http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q289/6/74.ASP To restore the My Handheld PC and Recycle Bin icons on the device, follow these steps: 1. Tap Start, tap Programs, and then tap Windows Explorer. 2. Tap the My Documents folder, tap Send To on the File menu, and then tap Desktop as Shortcut. 3. "Soft" reset the MobilePro. The My Handheld PC and Recycle Bin icons should return to the desktop. Note that you must have at least one folder or shortcut on the desktop in addition to the My Handheld PC and Recycle Bin icons, or else the problem will recur.
