    Lost Upper Screen Desktop Shortcuts


    I do not how or why but last night the list of web sight and W10 shortcuts disappeared from my upper desktop screen. Now when I log on the W10 pinned boxes/apps page appears. How can I get the shortcuts back on my desktop upper screen? Please note that my shortcuts are still listed on the bottom line of the desktop as before.

    Thanks

    Hi:

    It sounds as if perhaps you might have inadvertently switched to Tablet Mode?

    See here for help switching back to Desktop Mode:

    Hi!

    Or you accidentally click on desktop and deselect "show desktop icons".

    Right click on desktop, click on View and then "show..."
