SYMPTOMS

If you select all the icons on the desktop, right-click one of the icons, and then click Properties, nothing may happen. The properties for the selected items may not appear, or the properties for Microsoft Internet Explorer, the Inbox, or Network may appear.

STATUS

This behavior is by design.

MORE INFORMATION

To view the properties of all the icons on the desktop, do not select the system icons. The system icons include My Computer, Internet Explorer, Network Neighborhood, Recycle Bin, Outlook, and Inbox. Note that not all of these icons may be present on your desktop.
