Refresh It

Refresh It

We all use our desktops quite often when we’re working on our computers, don’t we? I mean, that’s where all of our icons are placed, that’s where we can change our desktop themes, our wallpaper designs and our screen saver choices. And that’s just the beginning of what we use the desktop for. There’s so much to be done on the desktop, we just can’t take the chance of it not working right.

What am I talking about? Well, every once in awhile, desktops do freeze up. You could be working in a right click menu and when you’re done with it, instead of it disappearing like it normally does, it will stay on your screen. Sometimes this happens when we’re trying to double click on an icon as well. Has that ever happened to you? Hopefully you know a little better of what I’m referring to now.

So, what can you do to “unfreeze” the desktop? Well, if you have a right click menu open, just click on Refresh. The desktop will go back to its normal state. If you’re having trouble with something else, go ahead and right click. The same menu will pop up and you can select Refresh from there. There’s always a way to turn things around! So, go ahead and give your desktop a refresh!
