    Unused desktop icons?


    after I played a game, I found that the icons in my desktop were different, I keep always them all together, I never have an empty space between them, but I found some empty space between them and I am afraid Windows alone deleted something and I don't understand why!

    What I want to obtain, without using the System Point Restore, is if I can be able to understand if Windows ran its tool for cleaning the broken links icons on desktop (unused desktop icons) while I was gaming.

    There is a registry somewhere I can see it?

    Do all the shortcuts work? All the documents open?
    Are any missing you know you had?

    Or have they just been moved around a bit?

    Games often change screen resolution, so perhaps you are seeing an effect of that. And a good number experience desktop icons being rearranged- not staying in the same place. Some very long threads on that topic- it's been something that some have experienced over many editions of Windows.
