First, which version of Windows including exact build number are you using? Which antivirus/malware apps are you using?
With regards to a desktop icon, typically those are just shortcuts to the actual Google Drive folder that would have been created on that computer's disk drive. Do you see an entry for Google Drive when have File Explorer open? It would be pinned under quick access near the top.
Looking forward to seeing your replies!

I had the same issue (missing google shortcut in Start Menu / Desktop). Thought I share what I did to recover my own google drive shortcut.
1. Open Google Chrome browser...
3. There should be your Chrome apps in big icons
4. Right click on whatever app you want to make a shortcut
6. A small window popped up and say... Create application shortcuts... Desktop... Start menu...
Hope this helps.

Several years ago I could actually create a Win8 desktop shortcut of an individual file in my Google Drive, But google removed it. So, it took awhile to find out why my KeePass manager file didn't have the new entries. Fortunately, I didn't fine myself out of town with not being able to access password DB file on my Android phone. On my Android phone I can still make shortcuts for files from Google drive of individual files. It would be nice if this were consistent.

Clicking googledrivesync.exe did nothing for me. Clicking on Google Drive in the Start menu just opens my File Explorer. I want to change which folders are synced, and I can't find any way to do it without the icon.

Incidentally, I wound up uninstalling and reinstalling Backup and Sync. I even cleared most everything out of Google Drive and removed it from all other devices. After reinstalling and setting it up again, there is no icon. Clicking on googledrivesync.exe does nothing but open another File Explorer window.

follow the instructions all the way down to the bottom, if you already have Google Drive Sync on your laptop, you should be able to go right to 'Editing Registry Files To Add GDrive To File Explorer'. Click on the word 'link' in blue to download the executable .reg file. This was super easy and added the Google Drive Folder right below my dropbox folder in windows file explorer.
NOTE: I do not have GSuite, just a basic free Google Drive account. I am running Windows 10 Pro 64 bit on my laptop
