 Post subject: Desktop icons disappear

I installed Classic Shell 4.3.0 on Win10 last September. It worked perfectly. However, a week ago all the icons disappeared from my wife's account. Names of programs were still there, and the programs ran, but no icons and no 'properties' (Right click - 'properties'). My account and the Admin account were both ok. I have run various checks and all my Windows files seem to be in order. I then wondered whether it was related to ClassicShell as it seemed to be related to Windows Explorer. I tried to uninstall Classic Shell, got various error messages, but then used the original ClassicShell 4.3.0 and seem to have uninstalled ClassicShell alright. The desktop icons did NOT reappear. I then reinstalled ClassicShell 4.3.0, only to find that all icons have disappeared from my account too (Admin still alright!). If I view C:\users\myfilename\desktop in the Admin account, all the icons apper alright, so it must presumably be a problem in the Windows Explorer associated with my and my wife's accounts. I presume that this must be due to some setting in the registry, but I don't know what that might be. Any help would be urgently appreciated. Thanks.

You can be 100% sure that desktop icons are not affected by the Classic Shell software in any way. There is some other issue with your PC. Contact Microsoft support.

Read the Search box usage guide.

I am a Windows enthusiast and helped a little with Classic Shell's testing and usability/UX feedback.
