SOLVED! Thank you! I certainly tried "Refresh desktop", which did nothing. I did open the Desktop file and compared, which is where I got the list to check
out what was missing. I was a bit afraid to do "Sort Icons" but at that point, I figured I had nothing to lose, so I tried first what seemed top be "native" and
it did nothing, but then I tried "By Name" and lo and behold, all the icons came back, all loaded into the left hand side of the screen. So I moved them all
to where they belong, and BINGO!
It may be true that you get all the definition there is with a tiny screen in DOSBOX, but it's so much easier to read in full screen. Nevertheless, I won't try
that again! As it happens, I have to run the Eureka program in the same DOSBOX on Windows 7, but the screen is well-behaved in that os, so that's
what I'll do, when I need it.
As I mentioned, a similar, but less severe problem occurs if I run MS Pinball in PCLOS--you certainly have to run that full screen. It would certainly be useful
if whoever does the screen programming would at least figure out a way to save the existing screen layout and restore it, and make that a simple
command, or, better yet, some kind of wrapper that could enclose things like DOSBOX and Pinball. I can't believe I'm the only one who would appreciate
Thanx again! --doug
