Windows 8 Bug – Recent Places on desktop

I came across an annoying bug in Windows 8 recently: the Recent Places icon appeared out of nowhere on the desktop.

Windows 8 - Recent Places

Here’s how to fix it next time it happens:

1. Win Key + E

2. Click Favorites

3. Click and drag the Recent Places icon on the Favorites folder. (yes, even if it’s already there)

4. Go to your desktop and refresh it (Win Key + D, then F5).

Enjoy!
