    I have a Lenovo R61 laptop with RC1 installed (7100)

    My desktop folder and file shortcuts keep disappearing!

    Gadgets are fine, but not shortcuts.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    If you right click on the desktop and go to View, does it say that your Icons are Showing? Make sure Show Desktop Icons is checked.

    I learned today that if I do NOT rename the shortcut, it will stay on the desktop.
