Missing Icons

By Weinis21 ·
A user is running Windows 2000 and had had their DOS Based program icons that were on the desktop dissapear. They were found in the recycling bin and restored. Now ALL icons have dissapeared, not just the DOS ones. The start menu is still there and is fine, just no icons on the desktop.

Perhaps someone is experimenting with the desktop settings on that workstation.

Check out Active Desktop settings to see if this has caused your problem. Windows 2000 Pro help says this:

"Once the Active Desktop feature is turned on, Web content is displayed or can be added to your desktop. When you right-click a blank space on the desktop and then point to Active Desktop, additional menu options also become available which enable you to customize and update desktop items.

Show Desktop Icons displays icons on the desktop."

Hope this helped.

That is exactly what it was, thanks. I found it when I got to the customers office. Thanks for the help. They had "show web content" checked in the properties
