On windows 11, sometimes after a reboot when I plug in my second monitor to my laptop the icons go missing on the second screen.
Below are screenshots from the two screens, the first image is the main monitor and the second image from the second monitor.
If I kill windows explorer.exe and restart it through task manager the icons appear correctly as long as the monitor is still plugged in. If I restart the explorer.exe process while the monitor is unplugged OR I set windows to "PC screen only" the icons will not appear when I plug the monitor back in or if I change the display settings to extend my screen.
Does anyone know how to fix this without having to restart the explorer process?
