Hello, right-click anywhere on the Desktop, select Active Desktop, and select Show Desktop Icons (a check mark appears next to this option if it is already activated). All your icons should reappear. If you don’t see them all immediately, press the F5 key to refresh your Desktop. I hope this helps..Booda2us

Are you using Windows XP?
If yes, then

1. Right click "Desktop"
2. Mouse over "Arrange Icons By"
3. Check "Show Desktop Icons"
