    You need to provide your system make, model, specs, version of Vista and a
    better explanation of "desktop can't be opened plus the others icons." I
    doubt that anyone can get a clear idea of what you are talking about from
    the little you said.

    Are you certain your mouse is plugged in? Can you move your mouse cursor
    around the screen?

    If you're using a laptop, has your touchpad been inadvertantly shut off
    software wise? On some laptop models the touchpad can be turned off and on by
    depressing a contact switch.

    a desktop PC.

    took for my PC shows the specification
    and answers your questions.The mouse
    is working well and I can move it.Thanks
    in advance for all of you who is trying
    to help me.

    For your information, I forget to
    say, that the only way
    to open any of the desktop
    items is by clicking right on
    desktop and use either open file
    or exploring it. Waiting for the solutions.

    Thanks

    Re: All of my desktop icons can't be clicked


    I am running Vista with SP1. A week ago several icons duplicated themselves
    on the desktop and did not function. I just did an auto arrange of the
    desktop, and all icons were duplicated and are non functioning. I now have 16
    desktop icons, 7 of which work. Any idea on how to fix, then prevent this
    from occurring?

    Greeg, I don't have the right click issue...the functioning icons work as
    they should. The non functional ones don't react to mousing and when I right
    click on them, I access the desktop preferences ( just like the icons weren't
    there.) Wish I could at least right click my seemingly permanent duplicates.

    does your Left mouse button work in other instances ?

    yes, the left mouse button works and all other features/hardware work as they
    should.
