    Default Music Icon

    Hi All.
    Toshiba laptop & W10.

    I have lost the Music Icon from the desktop screen. I have been doing some cleaning out & merging Icons. I have checked each icon on screen to see if I have moved to somewhere else. No.
    I tied "Search" bottom left in toolbar & it shows 3 musics All with ITunes Icon Not in any of those.

    What else can I do? Some of it I have still got on discs. Bought & borrowed. I cannot get this comp to download any of these discs bac into another Music

    When I got this Toshiba I backed up onto a WD 1tb portable drive. I have looked in it Cannot figure it out. I am getting worse at understanding instructions.
    Is there a magic word I don't know about. Thanks. PJ.

    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    You might have to be more specific, like was it a shortcut that led to your music folder.
    Or did it lead somewhere else.

    Then you need to go to whatever app or folder it would have opened & create a new shortcut on the desktop.

    Try searching for:

    *.mp3

    if you find a lot of them all in one folder then that's probably the one you are looking for.

    I Have found some in Media Player Playlist, thankfully, but all the Icons that go with the music are not there. I am resigned to having "Lost" a great deal of my collection. Most bitterly my Pink Floyd stuff. I am bereft, woe is me. . PJ.

    Could you do a search for say "Pink Floyd" of "Just another hole in the wall" or whatever?

    erm - that's brick


    Do the songs listed in media player actually play?

    If they do, find out where they are located (the songs are not located in the media player playlist, that just points to where they are...)
