How to Add My Computer & Other Icons to the Vista Desktop

How to Add My Computer & Other Icons to the Vista Desktop
 
 

The other day I covered how to turn Windows Aero on after you perform a clean install on your PC. Earlier today I went over how to turn ClearType off if you don’t like the way the font looks.

Another thing that might throw users upgrading to Vista when performing a clean install is getting the familiar icons for My Computer, Network, Recycle Bin and others onto your desktop. This task isn’t difficult; you just have to know where to look as it is a little different than adding the icons was in Windows XP. Follow the steps on the next page to add your desktop icons.


  • Right click on an empty portion of your Vista desktop
  • Click the link in the upper left corner under Tasks that says “Change desktop icons”
  • Click the check boxes beside the icons you wish to display on your Vista desktop
  • Click Apply
  • Click OK to close the window
  • Click the “X” in the upper right corner of the personalization screen to close it and you are done.
