Cannot Open Desktop Icons Or Create Valid Shortcuts

Feb 10, 2016

Since the last win 10 update, my desktop Folder icons do not work right. When I left click I get this

when I right click I get this

The only way I can open a folder (such as Downloads) is to right click, then select open.

I have tried creating new shortcuts and they do not work. Regular program shortcuts work fine. If I create a new short cut to a file, (ie a photo), I have to right click and select OPEN to view the file, then when I create a shortcut, it does not work unless I right click and select open.

I restored system to earlier date and all is well. When restarting computer I get force fed update. Selecting NEW from context menu was not there. I fixed that. Why come I get cmd when I try to open a folder?

Desktop Shortcuts Not Locating Files

Aug 5, 2015

I have a number of shortcuts on my desktop that when double-clicked respond with not finding the file using the path displayed. I have even gone to the file that the desktop points to and double-clicked it - with the same result. This has only started with W10 upgrade. However, there are other shortcuts that still work.

Shortcuts Won't Load Apps On Start Or Desktop?

Jul 30, 2015

shortcuts don't work on start or taskbar

Just installed Windows 10 - totally successful BUT: no shortcuts/links work in start menu, desktop or taskbar except for links to modern UI apps. Even weirder - shortcuts work if palced in saem directory as the target file/exe but not if then moved elsewhere, like desktop. And even weirder - right clicking a short cut and selecting open or run as administrator don't work, but selecting 'run with graphics card' does work.

I've tried every conceivable setting and nothing works. going crazy. This is installed on a Dell laptop.

Desktop Shortcuts - Preserve Order Of The Icons?

Aug 19, 2015

Noticed that their shortcuts on the desktop gets rearanched from time to time for no apperant reason? When I had last shutdown, I had a shortcut to Firefox and Excel located just below the "Recycle Bin" which is the second icon down on the left hand side of the screen below the icon for "My Computer".

When I next turned on my computer the shortcut icons had changed order with the shortcut to Excel at the top, followed by "My Computer", Firefox and "Recycle Bin".

Is there a setting in the registry somewhere that preserves the order of the icons?

Search Function Finds NO Programs Or Start Menu Shortcuts / Desktop

Jan 11, 2016

I recently performed a clean upgrade from a clean 8.1 Install of Windows Pro. It's connected to a domain and uses Folder Redirection. The search function finds NO programs or start menu shortcuts, desktop etc. When I click the start and start typing, a few things are found, and at the top of the window it says "these results may be incomplete".

I have rebuilt the search, stopped the services, renamed the data folder, and tried a new user profile, and it does the same thing.

How To Create A Desktop Icon For File Explorer

Aug 28, 2015

I just moved from W7 to W10 and haven't been able to figure out how to create a desktop app icon for file explorer. I can do it for apps that I've loaded, but can't figure it out for special Windows programs.

Yes, I have it in my task bar and can clearly see it in the start popup, but I'd still like to be able to launch with a desktop click, like I've been doing for years and years.

Can't Create (New Folder) Anywhere From Desktop To File Explorer Directories

Oct 4, 2015

About a week after Clean Installing Windows 10 from an upgraded version on my laptop, I noticed that i wasn't able to Create a New Folder anywhere, from Desktop to File Explorer Directories. Nothing! Even when i try clicking the "New Folder" Button in the Ribbon or pressing Ctrl+Shift+N it still won't work. In the Context Menu (Right Click), I can't find the "New" Button too. Is this normal for Windows 10 after being installed? Do i have to install something (maybe an update) for the "New" to appear in the Context Menu?
