    Hello,

    When I press the Show Desktop icon, the icons on the desktop cant be clicked on. When I try to double click, nothing happens.

    To double click on the icons, I have to press the show desktop icon again then manually minimise all of the windows and then I can click stuff on the desktop.

    Does anyone know why?

    Thanks.

    I take it you're using the Windows Vista theme and not the "Windows Classic" theme?
