Fences icon size: Medium
Answer to your questions:
1. When I disabled Fences all the icons and shortcuts and folders that File Explorer shows in my desktop folder do display on the Fesktop.
2. yes unselected Enabled at Desktop Pages, Settings
3. After my post of last night, I re-enabled Fences. Then I've restored a 10 day old snapshot. Then I copied and pasted most but not all of the missing icons/shortcuts/folders to the Fences enabled monitor display. I moved them into fences.
Now the problem is that what seems to be only one Fence which I recreated in my step 3 (before disabling Pages) above using File Explorer was fine for a while and then disappeared. I could find it off my main screen and drag back but now has disappeared without a trace. Disabling Pages doesn't bring it back.
Yes I do see the icons/shortcuts for those two (as well as others that i did not manually copy and past back to Fences via File Explorer) when i disable Fences.
Nothing special about those two icons/shortcuts that I can tell. One points to a local app for Stamps.com and the to the Stamps.com website app.
4. Separate Question: Is there any way to predict where a newly added or installed icon will appear before I move the icon/shortcut to a specific fence? They seem to default to a fence on the right hand side of my main monitor.
