Windows 7: help! lost all desktop icons

help! lost all desktop icons

i have Windows 7x64 Pro. The system is less than a year old and sparsely populated and clean.

This morning when I booted up, Windows opened and none of my desktop icons were present.

The Start Menu works and I can get to my programs but how do I restore my desktop?

Any help would be appreciated.

Nevermind! Sorry for the inconvenience. Somehow "show desktop icons" got turned off. Doh! (I'm not the only one using this computer.)
