Forum Thread: How to Show My Computer on Desktop in Windows 10

I don't know about you, but I really preferred having the My Computer icon right on the desktop. Seems like modern versions of windows don't have it by default anymore. There are two different ways you can add the icon back.

In Windows 10 the My Computer icon is called "This PC" and it's pretty easy to add back.

Add the My Computer Icon On Windows 10 Desktop

If you want to add Computer, Recycle Bin, Control Panel, or your User folder icon to the desktop in Windows 10, there's an extra step you'll need to know how to do.

Step 1: Right-Click on the Desktop and Choose Personalize.

Step 2: Now Select Themes on the Left-Hand Menu

Step 3: Now You Can Select Desktop Icon Settings Under the "Related Settings" Section.

Step 4: Now Please Click on Desired Icon Checkbox.

Step 5: You Should See the Icons Show Up as Soon as You Click Apply.

You can also change the icon as you want by clicking on " Change Icon" Tag.
