    Where's my beautiful desktop?


    Hi, hoping you can help
    My desktop is now just apps. I can't see my usual desktop with the files etc, is there a way to fix this? THANKS
    (I have a pic of what it looks like but I'm not sure how to post it.)

    Do you have "Show Desktop Icons Disabled"?

    *right click your desktop and click on views to check*

    Hello Nyria, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Double check to see if you may have turned on Tablet mode by mistake.
