Re: Hidden Desktop Icons !!

Would you happen to know how to tweak your icon cache? If not::


* I n c r e a s e Y o u r I c o n C a c h e *

1) Click your -Start- Orb [image:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/Fra...ows-vista.gif]

2) In the -Start- Search area, type "regedit" and press -Enter-.
--- • -This command will require elevation so hopefully you're the
Administrator
-
3) If all branches are collapsed, direct yourself to
"-[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer]-"

4) Single Click on -Explorer- and you should see the following values:
--- • -Default-
--- • -IconUnderline-
--- • (And you MAY see -AlwaysUnloadDLL-)
--- • (And you MAY hopefully see -Max Cached Icons-... if so, go to
step 6)

5) On the right box, under the -Default-, etc., Right Click in the
White Area, Select -New-, then Select -String-. Name this *-Max Cached
Icons-*.

6) Double-Click on the -*Max Cached Icons*- string and set the -Value
Data- to a number between _*100*_ - _*4069*_ (Vista Default is only
500).
--- • Each number represents a storage "kilobyte", so for example, if
the -Value Data- is _*500*_, Vista will save 500kb worth of Icons in the
"-Icon Cache-".
--- • But if you have the maximum number, _*4069*_, Vista will save 4
MegaBytes worth of Icons which is an estimated ~3,000 more icons.

7) Close the -Registry Editor- Completely.

8) Restart -Windows- for the changes to take effect.

If this doesn't work, I'd recommend seeing if there's an update
available for your Graphics Device.

* C h e c k F o r D e v i c e / H a r d w a r e U p d a t e s *

1) Click your -Start- Orb [image:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/Fra...ows-vista.gif]

2) In the -Start- Search area, type "Device Manager" and press -Enter-.
--- • -This command will require elevation so hopefully you're the
Administrator
-
3) If all branches are collapsed, open -Display Adapters-. A graphics
card and/or video card should now be seen tree'd beneath -Display
Adapters-.

4) Right Click on the graphics card and click -Update Driver Software-.
--- • If it can't find anything, or asks you to enter the disc, just
-Google- the name of your device, go to the Manufacturers website, and
manually search for the latest version of your hardware/device.

Hope this helps.
