Icons like This PC, Network, Recycle Bin, and your User folder are all considered “desktop icons,” even though modern versions of Windows don’t show them all on the desktop. Windows 7, 8 and 10 don’t show any of the desktop icons except for Recycle Bin. In this article I will be showing you how to display icons on your Windows 10 Dekstop.

  1.  Right click on the blank desktop and then choose Personalize option to open the Personalization window.

  2. Once the personalization window pops up, click Theme  from the left-hand side.

  1. Now from the right side , click on  Desktop icons settings

  2. Select the desktop icon(s) that you want to display on the desktop, then click OK

  3. Now close the Theme windows to go back to the desktop and you will see that the selected icons are displayed on the desktop.
