Setting Standard Desktop icons on Windows 11
Strangely enough, Windows 11 does not feature any typical icon on its desktop when installed. No My PC, no Recycle Bin, nothing, just plain and clean wallpaper. Personally, I like this clean look and feel but of course, there are a lot of users that are used to have some system-related icons on their desktop for easy access.
Do not sweat, we will turn them back on with ease. The best part is that you can choose which one would you like. So let’s dive right into it and get the icons back for the old Windows feel and look.
Showing selected Icons desktop
- Right-click on Desktop and select Personalize
- Select Themes from the list of personalization items
- Inside themes scroll down and click on Desktop Icon Settings
- Desktop Icon Settings will open and inside it, place checkmarks beside icons that you would like to appear on the desktop and click OK
- Close settings
As always settings and choices will be automatically applied and icons will appear right away on the desktop.
