2) moving to desktop and then release the key,
the new shotcuts will be created on the desktop

I believe you are talking about short-cuts on the desktop.
If you have the program on the Start Menu you can copy the shortcut there and paste it into the desktop to restore the icon.
If the icon produces blank pages, it may have been a program that required a specific command to install it. Once you have deleted it, the only way to restore the icon properly is to re-install the program and tick "put short-cut on desktop".

Since you have a Dell laptop, you can go about fixing it this way:
Right click anywhere on your desktop screen; then look for and move your cursor on "Graphics Options."
Then look for and move your cursor on "Rotation."
Now click on "Normal." Then it should put your screen back to the upright position
If you don't have the option to fix it like above (method #1), there are shortcut keys you can try. Press on these keys and hold them down at the same time: CTRL and ALT and UP ARROW. For whichever way your screen is rotated, by pressing those 3 keys at the same time should put your screen back to the upright position.
One way of doing this in Windows Xp is create a shortcut from control panel into desktop. After putting the shortcut icon on the desktop, Rigth-Click on the Icon Select Properties. Click on to Shortcut keys and Press desired shortcut keys.
I'm guessing you're referring to the Windows desktop background. But if not, please provide additional information.
The Windows desktop background is the image on the desktop that appears behind the shortcuts. To change the background, please follow the steps below:
1. Open the "Display Properties" screen by placing the mouse cursor over a blank area of the desktop. Click the right mouse button to access the context menu and choose "Properties". You can also access the "Display Properties" screen by clicking on Start, select Control Panel, and then Appearances and Themes. Open the "Display" shortcut.
2. Select the "Desktop" tab from the "Display Properties" screen.
3. Pick a picture from the Background list by clicking on it and click on "Center, Tile or Stretch" to select the position. Personal pictures in the "My Pictures" folder are listed by name in the Background list.
4. Choose a background picture in another location by clicking on the "Browse" button. You can use any files with the following extensions: .bmp, .dib, .gif, .htm or .jpg. Click on "Center, Tile or Stretch" to select the position.
Create Icons for Shutdown and Reboot
If you find it annoying to access the Start Menu for shutting down or rebooting the computer, create a shutdown and reboot icon for the desktop. Desktop Shutdown Icon
Right click on the desktop Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard Type [shutdown -s -t 00] without the brackets. Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed. Desktop Reboot Icon
Right click on the desktop Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard Type [shutdown -r -t 00] without the brackets. Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed. A Final Note:
If you happen to be as fanatical as I am about having nothing on the desktop, drag the new icons into the Quick Launch area of the Taskbar.
then use it.
if not resolve it
then use following step ;-
click on start then go to RUN and type SFC /SCANNOW
this command recover all windows lost files, if it will ask windows CD then enter the windows disk.
