Desktop missing from Windows Explorer
I have been struggling along with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on a new i7 machine for about a year and have a habit of creating shortcuts on my Desktops leading to things like folders, documents, spreadsheets, pictures to which I expect to want quick access. I normally access them by opening Windows Explorer and clicking on the word "Desktop" in the left pane which then gives me a A - Z list, in the right pane, of everything on my Desktop.
Today I spent several hours on MS Publisher trying to see if I could print background colour all the way to all edges of the pages in a A5 booklet card - without success.
My problem is that when I now open Windows Explorer I can no longer see Desktop listed in the left pane. I know I can access my needed items by going to C:\ > Users > MyName and clicking on "Desktop" but that is a laborious process. I have done a System Restore to a point yesterday when I know I could find "Desktop" in the normal way in Windows Explorer.
Can anyone please tell me how make the link to Desktop once again visible in the left pane of my Windows Explorer ?
I am 84 years of age and a bit slow with too much technicality so a detailed explanation would be much appreciated, thanks.

The fix saying Right-click and then Show All Folders did not work for me
Found in the tutorial "How to Restore the Defaul;t Favourite Links in Windows 7 Navigation Pane". That is Right-click on Favourites and then on Restore Favourite Links - that worked fine. Many thanks for the wonderful help. Beejay.
