Windows 7: Delinquent Desktop

Delinquent Desktop

Hello, again. My Desktop icons are not showing up on my Desktop. The task bar icons are there and the screen saver is there, but no Desktop icons. I hit the "Show Desktop" button a few times, but nothing. I tried "Refresh", but nothing. I restarted a few times, but nothing. I opened the Desktop folder and all the icons are in it and they are all functioning properly. I used the "Send To" button to create an icon for a program that didn't have one and it was created in the "Desktop Folder" but not on the Desktop itself. Can someone please help? Thanks.

Doesn't it make you wonder how it got unchecked in the first place

What was that saying? To err is human, to really foul things up requires a computer
