    Default Desktop Icons disappered

    My desktop Icons have gone the way of the phantom. They are still in the desktop file in file mangler but do not display. I am shure I did something boneheaded I just don't know what it was.

    Go To your Desktop folder located in C:\Your User name. You might have to enable show hidden files and folders. Are the icons present in this folder? Check their properties. Do they have the hidden attribute ticked?

    Do as Elmer B suggested!!! hope it helps...
    or
    You might have clear check mark Show Desktop Icons... If it so try this:

    Right-click the desktop, point to View, and then click Show Desktop Icons.
