If a person seeks help and then throws stones at the people offering such help and said person will not listen to the help offered then there is no more left to do here.

There is also a C:\Users\Public\Desktop folder.
As far as I know, by default anything in here will be displayed on your desktop, and can affect it.
Maybe some programs put icons in the Public desktop during the install ?
I don't use desktop icons...so anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

For someone who wasn't even aware of what Explorer was, maybe extra patience is required.

Seems like some are taking things a little too personal...

LOL And if people talk in nebulous terms and refer to things that everyone may not understand, then . . .

Lots of luck solving this really complicated issue. I hope that you can get the help that you need. Maybe try a kinder and gentler approach would help. It seems to help when asking for help. This Site offers more help than you ever will need in your lifetime. Try it. Have a nice day.

It became complicated because people used terms and talked about things I did not understand. I deal in real things, not nebulous terms. Here's an example of a guy in Oklahoma with a question about the OK state wide Public Safety radio system, a Motorola trunked system. I'll bet you wouldn't know what we were talking about unless someone explained it to you.

MY REPLY: You are seeing 48912 plus 3 status bits, used when two talkgroups are patched together.
There may be a setting in your scanner to turn Status Bits OFF so you will only see the basic talk group number.

Curious, did you find the TEST folder when opening Explorer?

This isn't a forum devoted to scanners and trunking. But if I did need help in that area, I would expect that in the nature of asking for help about something I do not know the answer, there may be what my confused mind might register as being 'nebulous terms' even though they are no less real items than something like for example, your missing TEST folder.
