Windows 7: Photos on desktop gone off screen

Photos on desktop gone off screen

Hi. I just did something silly - I pasted photos from phone onto desktop, ready to file to folders - but accidentally pasted the whole lot - and there are more than are showing on the desktop. I deleted most to make some space but the others didn't move back across onto the desktop. I managed to drag back the row that were just off-screen and just showing - but where are all the others?!!!!! I have copies elsewhere, I just don't like the idea of hidden things off the edge of the desktop! cheers.

My photos will no longer show in full screen in Windows Picture viewer or my screen saver. I recently installed the latest Illustrator CS4 trial. That is the only thing I have done to my brand new computer.
