    unable to unlock icons on my Desktop


    I have just installed Windows 10 from Windows 7. no checks on Auto arrange or Align Icons to Grid. I also use the program Fences to arrange some of my Icons but I also have some outside of the Fences. Any suggestions?

    What happens when you tick them? I have tried by unticking and ticking.
    If that doesn't work, use this tutorial to use sfc /scannow:SFC Command - Run in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
