    How do I place an icon on my desktop?


    Hello,

    I am running Windows 7 on my HP laptop. When I upgraded from Vista Windows 7 placed several icons on my desktop which is fine. But for some reason it stopped placing icons on my actual desktop and began placing them in my desktop folder. I transferred a file that I needed to work on from my phone and wanted to place it on my desktop so that I could work on it but 7 placed the file in my desktop folder instead. How can I get this file to appear on my actual desktop?

    Thank you.
