Invalid Desktop Icons After Synchronization

Invalid Desktop Icons After Synchronization

Synchronized today the entire content of my pc with Dropbox. Appeared to be succesful, except that 3 of the desktop icons were made invalid. How do I make them functional again ?

Hey there @ulrik23, thanks for checking in with us. 

 

Could you send me a screenshot (without any personal information included) of the icons, so as to have a better visual of this?

 

Looking forward to hearing back from you!

you can try right clicking them then clicking show file location. otherwise you can go into the C:\Program Files (x86) or C:\Program Files and find the program .exe you're missing and right click it and choosing send to desktop or create shortcut
