I've never liked desktop icons, I just use the start menu. Somehow I made
them invisable (I think they are there I just can't see them) However every
once in a while I get a hair up my butt and want to change the look of my
computer, so now I want them back. What did I do and how do I get them back?

Thanks C

Hi,

Right click the Desktop/Arrange Icons By/Show Desktop Icons. If this
doesn't apply to your case, please post back and good luck!
