    When I hook up pc to tv, I have to press F10 on my laptop to switch the monitor from pc to tv, if not F10 on your pc it is the button that looks like one tv screen inside another.

    Look at your display settings. The reason why you would have the "background" and no icons is because you have it set up to extend the main(laptop) display(you use your TV as a dual monitor). You need to mirror the TV or have it set as primary display.
