I had my desktop items all in a row on the right hand side that all I had to do was click on the word desktop and they were all lined up. I was messing around with it trying to change it and have screwed it all up. Can anyone tell me how to get items in the "desktop" category. I don't want to go all the way to the right and press on desktop and see the desktop. Can anyone understand what I am saying.
I am complety guessing but it sounds like you had your icons pinned to the taskbar, and the taskbar on autohide on the right side, instead of on the bottom where it would normally be? So when you slide your mouse against the side it pops up?
if that's the case you should be able to right click on icons/short cuts and select pin to taskbar, or just drag the shortcut onto the taskbar
