Windows 7: Copied files icons missing on desktop?

Copied files icons missing on desktop?

I have recently been using some .bat tools to speed up searches in root directories.
The tools search for the files in a list.txt, and copy them to a new folder which appears on my desktop. It has been working, until I used a new version today.

It copied the files correctly, but I could not see the new folder appear on the desktop. I searched for it and found it where it should be, C:\Users\Evan\Desktop

Why does this folder exist, but not appear visually on my desktop? is it an error in my.bat file or something else?

thanks all!

Apologies, I restarted and the folder appeared. Very odd. I would still appreciate any comments on this though

Right click on the Desktop and pick Refresh after running the batch file, see if that makes it show up.

Desktop Icons Missing
When I save a file to the desktop it doesn't show up. I open windows explorer and it is indeed there, but the icon does not show when I go to the desktop. Only after I re-boot will it show. Can anyone help? Thanks.
