    Default Desktop icons missing in Windows 10

    I installed Windows 10 about a week ago now, and on boot, everything loads with no big deal except the desktop icons. None... The Taskbar is fine and the notification icons are as well..... BUT..... When I click for the RIGHT Mouse button menu... they come right up (along with the menu, of course). I have made sure the "Show Desktop Icons" option is checked, and even did an Icon Cache refresh..... they are still MIA...... SO........ Any replies/help in figuring this out would be appreciated.. Many Thanks ahead of time and a Happy New Year,,,,

    You say you have ensured that Show desktop icons from the desktop right click context menu > View is checked.

    Flip to the Tablet mode and back. See if it helps. You will get the settings in Settings > Settings > Tablet Mode.

    I'm not familiar with the use of Windows 10 and I have encountered similar problems.
