    I find that for some reason, my desktop photo keeps disappearing when I start up up my SP2. I simply get a solid black background with my desktop icons on it. It seems that this problem occurs more often if I have totally "shut down" the SP2, than if it had been just put to "sleep". Is there a fix here? (All right, I know, don't shut down.. but other than that.)

    It is a recent bug, no reason to reboot, you can fix it by restarting Windows Explorer from the Task Manger....

    I guess I'm just dumb, but I cannot find "Windows Explorer" here on my SP2. How do you go about this?

    This has been normal behaviour since I can remember... so much so that I thought it was actually meant to do this, perhaps not then?

    Anyway, I simply hit enter and it goes into my desktop :) that might be helped by having the desktop tile in the top left position though, so that hitting enter activates it.
