Windows 7: Desktop files are visible in Windows Explorer but not on Desktop

Desktop files are visible in Windows Explorer but not on Desktop

I have 25 files and folders on my desktop but only 15 are visible when viewing the desktop directly. All of them are visible when viewing the desktop in Windows Explorer. I have two monitors configured as one and keep all desktop items on one of them. I've tried selecting everything with CTL-A while on the desktop and moving them around as a group, to see if the missing ones might have somehow scrolled off the screen, but that doesn't reveal them.

Any idea what might be causing this? Thanks.
