Windows 7: Desktop Icons sometimes don't disappear after I delete

Desktop Icons sometimes don't disappear after I delete

This happens quite often; sometimes when I delete icons from the desktop, they don't disappear from the desktop. If I try to click one, however, it gives me a message that it cannot be found. I have to go to the task manager and close explorer and re open it.

Any registry fixes?

Hello Crovou,

You could usually refresh (F5) the desktop to have the ghost of the deleted icon go away. Sometimes restarting the computer may stop this refreshing issue though.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
