Desktop is missing

Everything on my desktop is missing. I have a taskbar at the bottom and I can see the wallpaper. But that's it. I can't right click on the desktop to make sure the show desktop icons is selected. nothing happens when i right click. the stuff that was on my desktop is not deleted or anything because if i go to computer and click on desktop, i can see them there. but how do i make all the icons and shortcurts and all show up again on the desktop?
