I have a laptop that when on the docking station it has Dual monitors setup, but at the time this started I was working on my laptop (not docked) and I am not sure what I did or even why it happened, but all my fences where reset and removed. All the Icons that were in those fences were gone. I docked the Laptop and sure enough the icons where on the other screen. I went ahead and remade all new fences, and I thought all was fine...
Turns out when that happened, it permanently hid some of the icons. The Recycle Bin icon was one of them and I am still finding random icons that should be on the desktop is missing. I researched how to turn the Recycle bin on\off. I went to the location to turn it back on and it was already checked.. by turning it off, then turning it back on causes the Recycle bin to appear, then immediately disappear. Same thing happens when I add Shortcuts to the Desktop that are already there. I cannot figure out how to permanently unhide the Recycle Bin, or the other hidden Icons on my screen??
I have tried to remove Fences and reinstall it to no avail... I am out of ideas and I am hoping that someone else has seen this or maybe Tech support can help out with this.... I am at a loss and I need these hidden icons to be available again.
If I look at the Desktop through Windows Explorer I can see the missing Icons, but I cannot unhide them... double clicking still hides all the fences, but does not make the icons in question reappear, incase your wondering.
