    Talking Desktop icons continue 2 b displayed in Windows 8.1 start screen along with wallpaper

    Desktop icons continue to be displayed in Windows 8.1 start screen along with wallpaper. It keeps happening to my PC on and off.



    All my updates, drivers, etc are up-to-date. It just happens a couple of times during the entire day. A reboot (or an explorer restart) sorts it out.

    No idea why it must be happening.

    Are you sure it is not your Start Screen tiles being displayed on your Desktop?

    That is really odd. I cannot find anything to illustrates this problem. Do you use any 3rd party apps such as Start8, Classic Shell or Pokki?

    No I don't use any third-party start button apps.

    This happened when I clicked on the start button or the Win Key to visit the start screen. While on the start screen, the tiles would work and apps open, but the icons being displayed on the start screen of course did not work. I use a plain blue wallpaper btw.

    A reboot solved this issue, but yes - it is odd!

    But then - that's Windows ! A reboot solves most issues!
