Can't See my Desktop Icons.

Hi, I cant see my desktop icons.. I tried right click>view>show desktop icons but doesn't work.

I can only see a file in desktop, it says "ApT39s"

I have no idea what that is.

Hello Rishab, and welcome to Seven Forums.

See if running the command below in an elevated command prompt may help. It will set the attribute for your desktop folder and all files in to be unhidden.

attrib -s -h "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\*" /S /D

Hope this helps,
Shawn
