Windows 7: missing desktop icons ??

missing desktop icons ??

Realized three or four desktop icons are just gone.
I have looked at the [right click]desktop/view & "show icons" is checked.
I have looked at C;/Users/..../desktop & they are not there.
No big deal as I can recreate them as needed but why?
thanks,
