    Accidentally unzipping large file on starting screen results in issues


    A few hours ago I accidently unzipped a large file on the starting screen and a bunch of files completely filled the entire screen. Everything is fine but now I can't see any icons on the starting screen, but everything works completely fine, besides File Explorer, Google Chrome, And The Control Panel. I am running the computer on Windows 10, and I have already restored the computer to about three days ago, but it didn't affect any files on the starting screen. Please give advice on how to fix this.

    I don't quite follow what the problem is!

    Browse to C:\Users\YourUserName\Desktop. Select all the files on the desktop that are part of the Unzipped folder and Cut them. then, Right click inside the Desktop folder and create a new folder, name it what you will. Right click inside this new folder and Paste the Cut files into this folder.
