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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
