        A windows 10 pc all of a sudden won’t display the desktop icons.  The icons are in the desktop folder, just won’t show.  Could this happen because of a corrupt user profile?  Any suggestions?

        Right click on the desktop
        Click “View”
        Is “Show desktop icons” checked?

        Keep an eye and make sure your icons stay hidden/viewable,  if it always stay like that, everything is ok, if not,  consider  repairing the icons.
