My desktop icons will not open because the usual dropdown menu for opening them suddenly omits the word OPEN.
This happened after I entered a date on the desktop with the Photoshop CS6 type tool. Could this have caused the problem? I have tried to delete the date but did not succeed.
I have a spare icon on the desktop for the REYCLE BIN which I cannot delete. How to get rid of it please?
I am on Windows10.
Many thanks in advance for you help.
