    My PC would startup fine at times, then startup with a desktop like this.

    The clock at the bottom right corner would go missing if this happens as well.

    Any help would be much appreciated. If any extra info is needed, let me know and i will post them up.

    Hi BlueCanon, Welcome to 10F! :)

    It kind of looks like your machine sometimes starts in Display view see: Change desktop icons view in Windows 10 to Details and List view

    • Have you been experimenting with key combo's?
    • Would you see these Folders after a "normal" startup, can you show a screenshot of the normal?

    Being in tablet mode will hide the taskbar and the clock as well. You may want to go over those settings: Turn On or Off Tablet Mode in Windows 10

    It would also be helpful if you filled in your: System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums I don't know if you have a desktop, a laptop or maybe a tablet with touch features.

    Hi Anak, thanks for the welcome!

    I've attached 2 screenshots of what I'm troubled with, I hope this would be enough.

    I've also taken your advice with the Display view but I don't think that's the source of my problems.

    Hope to get a reply from you soon. TIA!

    Thanks for filling in some of your specs but, you'll need to go further.

    What version and build of 10, is it home, pro, enterprise? Anniversary 1607 build number 14393.****, Creators 1703, 1709 Build 16299.**** ?
    There's been so many problems associated with the different flavors of 10 that you need to be specific.

    Check against the info in these links to see if your custom build is compatible with 10.
