Hi,

This is because the explorer.exe process is not running on your computer, you can start the service from the task manager
Press the "ctrl" " , "alt" and the "delete" key together on your computer, it will open up the task manager, you need to click on the file option on the left top corner of the task manager window and select the option new tasks and then type in explorer.exe in that window and click on ok. This will solve the problem.

How to reduce ddessktop icon size?


hey wassup

theres two ways you can go at this.

1. right click on an open area on ur desktop and just adjust the icons when u hover over the [view] option

2.make sure ur desktop is the only thing visible and give it one click on an open space just to make sure nothing is selected. then hit ctrl+&
at this point to test if it's working. hold ctrl then start to move your mousewheel on your mouse and the icons will start to all magically increase and decrease in size

now option #1 is a bit more easy and its static
while option#2 is a bit more dynamic and you can really make your icons really big or really small. it's up to you.

Restore active desktop


As the icons have increased in size that means ur screen resolution has changed

Goto desktop
right click on desktop  >>  Properties  >>  settings tab 
now u will find the Screen Resolution adjust it according to ur requirement and u will find ur icon size small again  ( if u increase the screen resolution)

For internet settings Create a New Connection Wizard
or u can check from Network Connection whether ur Local Area Network is Enable or not.

Thank You
