Windows 10 Desktop Icons Grey X glitch

Tell Your Friends.....

Short of ideas of what to write about next, my PC has seemingly decided to help out by creating a weird glitch to try figure out how to fix a few moments ago.

Reaching to double-click the Desktop icon to open Second Life, I noticed upon minimising my web browser to shift it out the way that a number of desktop icons had developed a large grey X next to the vast majority of them.

A search to figure out the solution suggests I ain’t the only person to have experienced this gremlin with Windows10 over the past couple of years.

I figured it out myself eventually. Just Right-Click on any part of the desktop where there isn’t an icon to bring up the menu, and click “refresh”. Job done, desktop icons back to normal.
