Assuming you are on Windows 10... if right click on the desktop in a place where there are no icons, you will get a menu.
If you are showing no icons on your screen at all, hover over the View option. A sub-menu will show. make sure that "Show Desktop Icons" is checked.
If you are trying to have the common desktop icons displayed of "Computer", "User Filed", "Network", etc...
the bottom entry on the menu says, "Personalize..."
Click on that, click on "Themes" on the left, click on "Desktop Icon Settings" on the right, then click the check box for every icon you want on the dialog that comes up, click Apply and OK as needed to exit the settings.
If you are on a different version of Windows, the instructions are very similar, you may have to scout around a bit to find how they work in an older version of Windows.
The use of desktop icons has served to simplify opening and using programs in Microsoft Windows.
With a simple click of the mouse, an entire program can be opened.
Unfortunately those desktop icons can also be deleted, sometimes accidentally or sometimes by the desktop cleaning utility that runs in Windows, but there is a simple process to recover desktop icons.
Just follow these steps.
Click it without a ticket.
To restore lost desktop icons, first place your mouse anywhere in a blank area on your desktop. Once you have placed your cursor in an unused area of the desktop, right click.
Check the pop up.
Once you have right-clicked your mouse in the unused area of your desktop you will receive a pop up menu or prompt.
Choose "Properties" by left clicking it with your mouse.
Grab that tab. Once you have clicked on "Properties" you will receive a dialog box.
Click on the tab labeled "Desktop."
Once you have clicked the "Desktop" tab choose "Customize Desktop" which will prompt another dialog box to open.
From there click on the "General" tab.
After you have clicked the "General" tab you will see a list of icons.
Simply choose the icons you want restored or placed on the desktop and then click "OK."
You have now successfully restored your desktop icons.
If its shared, are you logging in to user account or are you the administrator for the computer? The administrator account can add / remove rights for the others but locking desktop icons I haven't seen as an option. Try doing a system restore if there is a restore point available to a date before the problem started. No data is affected just settings and drivers and such
If your laptop shows something on your desktop before and suddenly it just stop showing things
then right click on your desktop,under VIEW, click on SHOW DESKTOP ICON. If this does not work then your laptop has been infected with Virus.You need to get a good anti-virus to remove the virus or format your system.
To enable those missing icons, right click on your desktop and choose Properties. Click on the Desktop tab and hit the Customize Desktop button. Next, under the General tab, check off any of the icons you want to appear on your desktop. Once you do that, they will all be returned to your desktop in full view. You can choose from the icons of My Documents, My Computer, My Network Places and Internet Explorer. Now, on the other hand, you may want to take some of those icons off your desktop. If that's the case, just uncheck them and they will be out of your way.
Right click on desktop, select Properties, click settings, adjust the screen resolution, click apply, if not better then try different resolutions until you find the icons are the right size for you and the desktop is the right shape (ie not stretched and not black areas around the edges
