    Desktop Icons, and Windows app icons disappeared 2rockonbazza
    @rockonbazza

    Hi.

    I have just bought and installed a Dell U2515H monitor (my previous was 1920 x 1080). All my desktop icons have now disappeared, and now only the names of the icons are on my desktop. I can still access them by clicking on the name. I have noticed however if I right click on the icons, and select “properties” for example – no window opens for the “properties” options etc. Plus no icons showing in folders – i.e. “This PC” folder lists all the folders but no “folder ” icons.

    I did download and install custom icons for all my desktop apps when I was running 1920 x 1080. I thought perhaps if I went back into properties and applied the custom Icons again it might work, but as I said above I cant even get the “properties” window to open.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks.
