After I restart my computer and go to my desktop, my startup items begin to load but none of my desktop items load unless I right click for some reason. I'll right click, get the loading icon displayed as my cursor, and 5-10 seconds later the desktop icons show. Anyone know why? I'm running Windows 8 Pro.
Malfunctioning profile ALL THE WAY.
Run a chkdsk on the system drive or make a new profile and copy all your stuff over.
system file checker may prove EXTREMELY useful but I would try the first two options I discussed.
A full shutdown and restart can sometimes solve this problem.
shutdown /r on
run or on commandline.
This is an old illknown feature in windows:
- Right-click on your desktop.
- Select Arrange Icons By.
- You will see a menu item Show Desktop Icons. Click it to toggle desktop icons on and off.
