    Windows 10

    Mouse disappears off screen and icons missing

    I recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Since the upgrade I have noticed the following:

    When my computer comes alive from screen saver mode, sometimes though not always all the icons are missing. The task bar is there but clicking on any item there does nothing. It's like everything just seizes up.

    Any solutions please. It is frustrating.

    Sounds like you have a virtual desktop that got added somehow. Click on the taskbar icon that looks like the square with two ears (next to Cortana in my screen shot. See if you have more than one desktops and close the extra one.
