oceanis issue! no desktop shortcut to open!!!!

Hello,

I tried installing oceanis onto my asus 1015pe netbook with windows 7 starter and after it restarted, the desktop background of the cartoon with the babies being made for the users needs came up. However, It did not pull up any desktop icons. I have nothing to click on and there is no bottom taskbar. I try to right click and nothing happens. I have tried to restart and it just pulls up the same un-useable desktop background. Please help!

Hello Councilal, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Right click on the desktop, select View, and make sure that you have Show desktop icons checked.

If the Oceanis shortcut is still not there, then you should also have a shortcut of it in your Start Menu -> All Programs -> Oceanis.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

This forum is a dream-come-true! We've been trying to change the desktop wallpaper on our laptop and it was a heartbreak to learn that Starter doesn't allow it!!!

But many thanks to you and Oceanis, my mother is now a very happy woman with her Twilight background!!!

Much love,
