Question

Q: Cannot right click on my Desktop. Icons Missing.

I just installed the Windows 10 Home Insider Preview build 10547.  Now when I right click on my desktop I get no response. My desktop icons are not showing and are hidden from view. Is there a way to restore my icons to my desktop?  Thanks.

I should mention that I can right click within a web page, taskbars etc with no problem.



Click on your desktop.  Then press SHIFT+F10 to bring up the context menu on your desktop.  Turn "Show desktop icons" back on for now.

This is a known bug in 10547.  You'll want to keep "Show desktop icons" on in this build.

Found a solution on my PC. Go to Settings /System and Tablet mode. If the setting on the top "Make Windows more touch friendly when using your devise as a tablet" is set to "on" this happend. Sett it to "off" and things are back to normal.
