How to Add "My Computer", "Network" and "Control Panel" Icons to Windows 10 Desktop

Just got a new PC and I'm really happy I've set up everything I've ever wanted to have on my own Computer. One of the things I did, I installed the best Windows Operating System so far, Windows 10 on the PC (if you'll also like to upgrade/install Windows 10 on your PC, here is a post that will help you out - Download and Install the final release of Windows 10). When I finished the installation, I noticed the Windows 10 OS has not been activated yet even after connecting to the internet. I've already activated it though (So watch out for our upcoming post on that, you don't want to miss it).

Well, to cut long story short, I've been enjoying the Windows 10 OS on my PC, with wide range of newly-added features like Cortana, Multi-Desktop etc but I faced a little challenge, I was unable to display the My Computer icon a.k.a "This PC" on windows 10, "Network", "Control Panel" and so on, on the Desktop without using the Shortcuts method. You won't believe that it took me some minutes before I figured it out. I really prefer having those icons right on the desktop for faster access and windows 10 doesn’t have it by default so I've decided to show you how I did it so you won't face the same problem when you upgrade or install your Windows 10. Here you go -

1. On the desktop, Right-click and choose Personalize as shown in the screenshot below.

2. Now select Themes on the left-hand menu.

3. Once you are there, click on Desktop icon settings under the “Related Settings” section.

4. Now you have all the icons right in front of you. So tick the box(es) in front of the icons that you want to appear on the Desktop.

5. Now, you can click Apply and Ok then all the icons you've ticked will be displayed on the Desktop.

You can see how simple and easy it is, now you'll be able to access those options faster than before. Are you planning to upgrade or install windows 10 anytime from now? or you've already installed but you have problem activating the Windows. Our upcoming post will teach you step-by-step how to activate your windows 10 in a blink of an eye, just like magic.
