Trash, missing desktop

De : Steve W

My deleted folder is missing on my Desk Top.  Does anyone know how can I get it back?


De : Michael Solomon

If you are referring to the trash, right-click on an empty space on the desktop, click on 'Customize' and click on "Change desktop icons" under tasks on the left column, a check mark next to the trash, and then click on apply and ok.

  • My Downlaods, located just above the trash, missing folder

    Earlier, I noticed my missing download folder disappeared from my Dock and appeared on my desk. I tried various methods, including "alias". I do not remember what 'method of duplication' last used but suspect it has been "duplicate" and place the file original in the dock and renamed the "double" to match the original.

    I noticed today on the dock seems to gather again correctly while the one on the desktop does not collect. What will happen if I removed one of the workstation (there were three of the four icons given to the docking station)? that is something would happen to the docking station, such as the three icons in the desktop as well disappear?


    Check your folder for user to ensure that the download folder is there. If so, you can delete the folder on your desktop. I did drag the folder on the dock and replace it by dragging the folder of your user folder / at the dock. Who should go back you to 'Normal '. If all goes well, you can then empty the trash.

  • Missing desktop icons, system restore only a temporary fix

    Hi all, hope someone can help.  The shortcut on my desktop icons disappeared over the weekend.  Ran a system restore and they returned with the exception of the trash to recycle, thought that I could live with that.  After a time I keep the laptop, returned the next day and they all went again.  Ran to an older date system restore, they came back, but when I re - start they're all going again.  Checked the box 'show desktop' and it works in the bar side and summer menu control panel "taskbar and start to" all the boxes checked.  Have tried to re - define shortcuts, process works very well but the system usually show them.  Interestingly, the laptop starts, icons flash me momentarily, but don't show in fact once the system is clean awake.

    Ideas please
    Thank you

  • System restored automatically after the installation of updates & a few missing desktop icons.

    Original title: same set of updates on both computers due to different problems, one problem being a system restore.

    I have two Windows 7 computers in my house.  They all have two problems after installing updates a month ago.  The problem for 'Computer 1' is a bigger problem than the problem of the "Computer 2".  2 computer problem not really seems to be a problem now, but I'll give you the information for comparison purposes. Sorry for the length of this post - I am trying to be thorough.


    News of the computer: Dell Studio 1745 laptop computer running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, six months at the time of the problem, now age of seven months. It came with Norton pre-installed, never used and uninstalled.  Trend Micro Internet Security installed at the beginning of the use of the computer.  Analyses Micro trend came clean.

    Background: set up with a single account (Administrator, of course) and after a few days of putting in place computer, said ale user account for everyday use.  Computer is configured to warn me before downloading/installation of updates of Windows, with permission for each type of account to install Windows updates.

    While in the standard account, I welcomed these download/install updates and was prompted to restart the computer.  I was done with the computer, so I just closed instead of restart.  According to "Your update history Review", it's updates and they were all successful:

    Update for Windows 7 for x 64-based systems (KB980846)
    Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile for Windows 7 x 64-based Systems (KB982670)
    Update for Windows 7 for x 64-based systems (KB982519)
    Update Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 for x 64 systems (KB982526)
    Cumulative update for Media Center for Windows 7 x 64-based Systems (KB981078)

    After you turn on computer back, everything seemed normal.  I opened Firefox and I got a notice that Firefox has an update is available, a standard user cannot.  Unlike some programs, there is no popup to sign as an administrator, so I went to start > switch user and signed as an administrator.  (There was no update of Firefox at this point - just a switch single user.) That's where the problem appeared: instead of normally load the admin Office, I had to wait while Windows configured my desk (it's new)... wait... wait... wait... wait... BAM!  Your computer has been successfully restored * insert date here * (I don't remember what it was - January of this year, perhaps - because I was so incredulous that it happened and I continued to watch the game "successfully restored").  I do not have the computer to eat, and it don't has not asked me if I wanted to restore it.  He just did, just on its own initiative, when I went on the admin account.  A bunch of shortcut icons are missing from the Office of the admin acct and the ACCT. standard, and wallpaper to the admin account has been changed.  I am not absolutely sure if nothing else was touched.

    I have searched online to try to understand why it happened, and I remember well from my only find, is that if I went to the restoration of the system, there will be an option to cancel it, but I don't see such an option. So I told the computer to eat on a few days to a week before that updates.  It doesn't seem to help.  Shortcut icons are still missing.  Looked at the update history and it shows the five latest updates as being installed successfully, but Windows Update tells me that I need to these five updates AND this time, the little check marks are only already there on four of the five updates listed.  (The first time, the little checkmarks were already there for all five.)  This is the update that is NOT now pre-checked:

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile for Windows 7 x 64-based Systems (KB982670)

    Do not reinstall the five updates.  I don't know if I should jump install them again, or if I should install only the
    now, four are already "pre-checked."  I'm very hesitant to install KB982670, because this update seems to be the likely cause of the problem given the fact that it is already pré-coché in the Windows and the following information updates for computer 2.

    Since I installed the latest updates for 1 computer with no apparent problems:

    X 64-July Windows malicious software removal tool (KB890830) 2010
    Update security for Windows 7 for x 64-based systems (KB2032276)


    The computer news: Systemax desktop running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, a month at the time of the problem, now age of two months.  It has not come with any pre-installed antivirus.  Trend Micro Internet Security installed at the beginning of the use of the computer.  Analyses Micro trend came clean.

    Reminder: Set up immediately with an admin account and a standard account for everyday use.  Computer has been set to automatically download and install updates for Windows, but is about to inform me first.

    At the time of the problem above with the laptop, desktop computer has been enabled.  As all loading,.
    an error message came that there was some kind of issue with the .NET framework.  At another person asked if he knew what was up with that, and it didn't.  Did not note the specific message, thinking he would tell me again if there was a real problem.  I thought it could have been some kind of Windows hiccups when starting the computer, not even knowing about update problems.  I have yet to see this message.  After the number of laptop (computer 1), I took a peek at the desktop computer (computer 2) to check that Windows Update and I saw that an update is available, which is the referenced above same update that the notebook had already the check mark in its box (KB982670), which gives me the choice to check the little to install it.  Very curious, since, as already mentioned, the computer has been configured to automatically download and install Windows updates.  Looked at the update history, and it has already downloaded and installed the other four updates that the laptop has been.  Changed the automatic Windows Update setting to warn me before you download and install updates.  I have not installed the missing update.  Said the only other person in the House who would probably bother install updates to not install it.

    A month later, 2 computer has a notification from Windows update that 21 or 22 updates are available (as a result, by clicking on the icon of the trial of Microsoft Office).  The update not installed a month ago is no longer on the list, and update history shows as having been installed a few days before, apparently because someone else in the House must have thought it looked like a good idea.  I installed all the 'important' updates and have not seen any more problems with computer 2.


    Yes, is there anyone with ideas on how to get 1 computer back to its state before the 5 updates listed above, and what to do about to reinstall some or all of them, I hope, without more problems, for example a random food system does not happen?  I have a feeling I will say that the random system restoration do not occur, but he did.

    Thanks for any help.

    How can I get my office, tool bar and the start menu back on windows vista. all I have is a black screen. I can't right click on that screen that nothing happens


    You can access Mode safe? Repeatedly press F8 as you start? If so you can try the configuration - control panel
    The Device Manager - graphics card - Double click on - driver tab - click the driver UPDATE - then
    Right click on the device and UNINSTALL - REBOOT.

    Another method to try to get to the desktop (try in normal Windows Mode without failure) is
    CTRL + ALT + DEL and the processes tab find EXPLORER.exe and COMPLETE the PROCESS on this subject - and then
    on the Applications tab - lower right - new task - type in EXPLORER.exe. Safe mode is reached
    by tapping F8 as you start several times.

    First check this thread in case it is simple and if not to come back to this thread.

    Black screen problems are extremely difficult to repair and all patch is usually on a base hit or miss.
    That there is no information on a black screen as it is on a blue screen just adds to the
    Difficulty. Often using a restore point or Startup Repair will have no effect. You can try a
    Google to see the proposed repairs, whom some have worked however these cover a wide
    field efforts.

    Here's a video of one of them.

    Here's another fix

    You have a Vista disk? You can try restoring the system to it. If you don't have the disks your

  • Missing desktop shortcuts!

    Hi, last night I went to bed and everything on my desk was normal. I left the open pc, no sleep, without extended, just idle standby mode. Today I wake up, I look on the desktop and half of my shortcuts to the games disappeared. Not all the shortcuts, only half of them. And no other desktop icons where affected, not as my personal folder, trash, or my computer. Only shortcuts, which were here 5-6 hours ago. I don't a not uncheck Show Desktop Icons, so it's not the problem. I had the same problem a few weeks ago, but I run CCleaner from one day to the next, so I though maybe he deleted, but tonight it was not the case. In the event viewer, I see nothing wrong in the hours I was awake from the PC.

    No idea why this is happening? I know that I can just create shortcuts again, but I want to know why this is happening.

    As explained. But a question, what are the criteria to identify a broken shortcut? All of the shortcuts that I had on my desk were clearly not broken, each of them, launched the game he was supposed to. They were created from others since the installers of game or me, by copying a shortcut already in my Start menu on the desktop.

    The maintenance tool also removes the 'unused' shortcuts (past three months). However, there seems to be a bug with this tool that causes the deletion of shortcuts that are in regular use, as well (that some users reported before). Ramesh Srinivasan, Microsoft MVP [Windows Desktop Experience]

  • missing desktop icons and reappear at the start?

    I have a desktop PC with i7 and 16 GB. It runs on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. Whenever I start my PC, all the desktop icons appear normally and quickly at the beginning. Then at the end of the initialization, all the desktop icons would change the folder symbols of gray before returning to their normal color symbols, one or both. The PC works fine otherwise. So, what's up with that?

    When google, many seem to have a similar problem, but none offer a REAL solution. Care to help? Please provide only the answers that have been soundproofed/accepted as a solution to the problem.


    It is regrettable that the steps in my previous post did not help to solve the problem. This problem could occur due to the corruption of the file system or damaged user account.

    Please follow the steps mentioned below:

    Method 1: run (SFC Scan) System File Checker because this could be a problem with corruption in the Windows system files. System File Checker is a Microsoft Windows utility that allows users to search for and restore corruptions in Windows system files. Consult the following link;

    Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files

    Method 2:

    You can create a new user account on your computer, and then check.
