How do you unhide it? LOL. I can't find it.
To unhide the icons just re-check the 'Show Desktop Icons' option.
im trying but it just wont unhide
* Right-click an empty area on the desktop, and select 'Arrange Icons By.' * Check the 'Show Desktop Icons' option.
Yeah, but the thing is: The hide option doesn't just make the icons go phantom, it makes the whole desktop inactive, so nothing can be done through the desktop; you'd have to do it through a "Explore" window, and one of the things that the process of hiding requires is the use of the desktop... se the paradox?
Laptop w/XP has 2 users. One works normally; the other has no icons showing on the desktop, and the right click does not work. I think the desktop is really there, but a blank screen may have been displayed over top of it. The Task Manager is prevented from opening, so I cannot check what's running, and the Administrative Tools directory is empty. Scanning w/M/S Security Essentials does not find a virus. I am completely confused!
How can I unhide desktop icons when the right click is disabled?
