    Please can you post a screenshot of a full window- not just a small portion of your screen.

    As I showed you, and as Try3 has said, these appear at the bottom right of a file explorer window.

    You first screenshot appeared to show them on the desktop above your taskbar.

    Can you please help us understand what, exactly, you are seeing so we don't waste time? Thanks!!

    ----------------------------

    I cannot get System Restore to work
    Please be more specific.

    a. Do you have any restore points available?
    E.g. win key + r, rstrui.exe (type enter), click Next
    I see
    Unwanted links to display info -bottom right of screen-1.jpg
    for example.

    Or do you mean
    b. I have one or more restore points available but restoring one fails.

    Or do you mean
    c. System Restore is not enabled

    Please clarify explicitly. Thank you.

    I'm no Windows expert - but a Google search for CTRL SHIFT 6 finds (amongst others) Having Fun with the Windows 10 Desktop | ITPro Today: IT News, How-Tos, Trends, Case Studies, Career Tips, More

    And I quote - This key combination turns the Windows 10 desktop into a single column file listing, complete with date, size, type, etc.
    To recover the Windows 10 desktop from either of these key combinations, just right-click on the desktop, choose View, and then select your icon size.
    End of quote.

    Does this help?

    I think you have hit the nail on the head.
    Mind you, my Desktop does nothing in response to the suggested Ctrl-Shift-6 keys [or Ctrl-Alt-6 as some comments in that article suggest].


    The key thing for the OP is that the Desktop can be returned to normal by right-clicking on the Desktop, View and selecting any of the icon Views.

    Yes these two small icons appear at the bottom right of the File Explorer window. Not the desktop. Try 3 has suggested that these icons appear on everyone's File Explorer window so perhaps it is that I hadn't noticed them before so I am sorry if I have wasted your time but thanks for all of your help.

    There's never any need to apologise for having asked a question in this forum.
    Just look at Saint's post #12. I had never even heard of that before & he would not have posted it but for your question. Even though those shortcuts don't work for me, at least I've now heard about them.

    Thank you Try3. I am not sure what I achieved by Ctrl + Shift + 2 or 6 on the assumption that these two small icons appear on all File Explorer pages. (I had assumed that those two shortcuts were the source of the icons - obviously not). If you hold the cursor over those icons those are the shortcuts that are displayed but not sure of the significance of the shortcuts. Clicking the icons changes the view. Looking at the "Having fun with Windows Desktop" Those shortcuts don't work for me but I think there might be a clue in the date of the article - 2015!

    They are just views which can also be adjusted using File explorer's View menu.
    Those icons can become annoying when search results are displayed since their default is the Large thumbnails one. This can be turned off in favour of the Details one [the left-hand one of the pair] -
    I thought there was a tutorial for this but I cannot find it. I used Change Search Results Default View - Ramesh Srinivasan to do it.

    If you are going to tailor search results views at all then do consider going the whole hog and using LesFerch's WinSetView - TenForums

    Yes, I noticed the date as well but some of the comments were about it working in TenForums.
    Perhaps it's just particular display drivers that can achieve the change, I don't know.

    My Explorer windows do not show those icons:

    Keep note to how customized my Explorer window looks compared to the default Windows 10 windows. Look at the top of the picture.


    EDIT! (9:40 AM my local time)

    I found the way to disable those two icons down there:
    Go here and uncheck:

    pepanee,

    But your Status bar is showing.
    I think it was another of your customisations that turned off those two icons.

    In my standard File explorer window, I can either have
    - the Status bar & those two icons
    or
    - no Status bar & neither of those two icons


    All the best,

    I'm using an alternate, 3rd party, Status Bar.
    Look what happens when I check that checkbox from the picture above:

    Unwanted links to display info -bottom right of screen-image.png

    Look at the bottom of this window. The two icons show up after I did the checkbox.
    I highly suggest the thread starter try my suggestion from my previous post.

    Edit (10:14 AM my local time):
    Disabling those two links will also make the total number of items, listed on the left, to disappear too. Judesman, you are not used to looking at that number on the left side, right?
    If you do want to see that number, and disable the two links, then you'd have to do a modification kinda similar to what my Explorer windows look like. I can assist you with that later if interested.
