    Drives show on desktop toolbar but not on screen



    Hey all,

    Usually, I pretty much find all issues that I face and resolve them AFTER A LOT OF READING AND HEAD SCRATCHING . But this one has me stomped to the fullest.

    I updated a few machines from 10240 to 10586 (upgrade).

    I usually like to have my desktop icons on the toolbar instead of the screen (like to see full theme).

    Now the funny thing is that if I decide to show desktop on toolbar sometimes removable drives and even all hard drives will show on desktop toolbar but not on screen.

    Here is a pic showing that removable drive is not on desktop.



    Now look. If I set desktop to toolbar. Removable drive is there. (Orange circle around it)


    Some users see all their drives (Fixed and removable) on desktop toolbar but not on screen. They don't appreciate and neither do I

    I DON'T WANT THAT! Anyone seen this and got a fix to remove drives form desktop??

    Thanks guys

    Bump. Maybe someone more hasn't read it and knows the answer.

    Shawn, any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Don't make the default 'Desktop' folder a toolbar.
    Create your own custom folder with custom shortcuts and set that as a new toolbar.

    Hi Edwin,

    Thanks for the tip.

    In my 20 years of computing this is the firs time that only 1511 update (not clean install) has this issue and only with some machines.

    Your workaround is a good idea but basically this should not happen.

    Thanks. :)
