    The desktop icons disappear after reboot. The operating system is windows xp pofessional. No virus found. How do I solve this problem

    Hi akilsun,
    -Remember you proceed with recent computer between the calendar changes when things worked fine and now?
    This problem occurs if the function display desktop icons has been disabled.
    To enable this feature, see the following article:
  • the desktop icons disappear when I connect through a VPN

    On my Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, SP1 system, automatic reorganization and snap to grid are unchecked.  And I don't have problems with icons on a restart.  I have problems when I access my system in my home using a VPN and the DRC.

    Sometimes when I connect, I find that most of my desktop shortcut icons have disappeared and the few remaining ones are reorganized.  It happens every time and I did not understand a common denominator as to when it occurs.

    I copied all my desktop shortcuts to a folder on a different drive if I can put them all after they disappear, but when I copy and paste them on the desktop, they do not return to the same places they were in front.  Instead, they are lined up on the grid starting at the top left and go down and creating more columns until all the icons were pasted.

    So, I have to manually, drag and drop them where I want them to be.

    Like others who interrogated him about the desktop icons, when I right click on the desktop I do not receive a "Properties" link as shown.  I'm getting , sort by view, refresh, paste & paste the shortcut, cancel deletion, New, screen resolution, Gadgets and Personalize.

    I also tried another solution that said"right-click an empty space on your desktop and Select the desktop icons.  When I right click, I get the menu described in the previous paragraph.  Then when I start to clicking on icons to highlight, the menu disappears.  If I pointed out all the icons first and then with the right button on the desktop, the menu and the highlighting disappears.

    How can lock the desktop icons?  I agree with the donor who asked a parameter for "don't mess with my desktop computer EVER.

    Hi Jane,

    Given that the problem seems to occur when you access your system from home using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) and RDC (Remote Desktop connection). I would like you to post your question in the TechNet forums for help.

    Thank you

  • The desktop icons disappear

    Start and the desktop icons disappear when the computer is left unattended for a period of time.

    All I have is the wallpaper and the cursor of the mouse.

    Computer must be restarted.

    I have attempted to correct the problem with all possible suggestions, but I have to restart computer each time.

    Please help.

    Hi reda

    Thank you for taking the time to help me with my problem.

    I tried method 1 and it did not help, I tried method 2 and I received an error message indicating that the sfc scan has failed and method 3, returned a negative virus detection.

    Out of pure frustration, I pulled the cables at the back of the computer and left the cable VGA/SVGA male PC to another port on the computer (at the bottom of the computer toward the upper left side), and it seems to have done the trick - why I do not know?

    Since the cable, the computer has been running at 100%, and the problem seems to have corrected itself.

    Thanks a lot again for your answer.

    Kind regards

    I do not remember how it works under Windows 8 (I'm under 8.1), but there has been no change between the two versions, so I plan:

    • Open the explore

    • Choose to restore favorite links

  • Pavilion p7: the desktop icons disappeared

    When I started my pc this morning I founf that all my desktop icons disappeared

    Hmm, that's strange. I wonder if you might have accidentally switched to Tablet mode, where the desktop icons would not display. See switch between Mode desktop and Tablet (Windows 10).

    If this does not work, try to install the Windows updates and reboot your computer. I would also like to run a virus scan. Good luck!

    What about another mouse?

    And finally - if you have a USB keyboard - unplug unit after getting connected and try it then (perhaps a stuck key).
