As Patcht1313 said, if the matter is all about My Computer and My Documents icons then here is how you can make them seen on you desktop...................................................

  • Click Start
  • On the menu, right click My Computer
  • Then in the drop menu, Click Show on the desktop..........
My Computer icon will now be seen on the desktop.

For the case of My Document icon, do as you did for My Computer icon.

I hope this will work if your problem is all about icons.

Cheers...............................

If you mean you want to reset everything then i'm going to assume that you want to reformate your pc. And as far as your icons go i'm going to assume that your talking about your My Computer and My Documents icons and if you want thouse on your desk top do the following:

Right click the taskbar and go to properties
Next click the start menu tab
Choose classic start menu and your icons should appear on the desktop

But this is only my assumtion as to what you mean, as Fusiondc said please elaborate a little more so i can help you out with this ;)

Tip

Recreate the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch toolbar


To re-create the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch
toolbar, follow these steps....

1. Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to create a
file with the following lines:
[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop
2. Save the new file as a file named Show Desktop.scf
in the WindowsSystem or WinntSystem32 folder. Note
that Notepad may automatically append a .txt extension
to the file name. Remove this extension if Notepad
adds it. These steps do not work if the file is named
Show Desktop.scf.txt.
3. Quit Notepad.
4. Using Windows Explorer or My Computer, right-click
the Show Desktop .scf file, and then click Create
Shortcut.
5. Copy the new shortcut to the appropriate folder. In
Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98, copy the shortcut
to this folder: WindowsApplication DataMicrosoftInternet
ExplorerQuick Launch

In Microsoft Windows NT or Microsoft Windows 2000,
copy the shortcut to this folder: WinNTSystem32
In Microsoft Windows XP, copy the shortcut to the
following folder: WINDOWSSystem32ConfigSystemprofileApplication
DataMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick Launch

6. Rename the shortcut to Desktop.
The Show Desktop icon automatically appears on the
Quick Launch toolbar.

Desktop URL shortcuts no longer have website icons. Ugly E symbol


Right click on the shortcut and copy the url.

Create a new shortcut and paste the url into the location, give it a name then save the new shortcut.

The new shortcut should appear on your desktop with the icon of the website. You can then delete the old shortcut.

Unfortunately, this seems to be the only way to get the proper icon. You can click on the change icon button when you're viewing the propertis of the shortcut but the icon of the website will not be displayed.

If this information is helpful to you, please take a few minutes to rate this reply.

Program Icon does not show up on my desktop


Click on Windows button. In the "Start Search" column just about the button type in "Office" and you'll be given a list of all programs that have the word "Office" in the name. Right click on the program and select "Open file Location".
In the folder find the shortcut icon you want to be in the desktop. Right click it and select "Create Shortcut". An error window will appear. It will say "Window cannot create a shortcut here.
Do you want the shortcut to be placed on the desktop instead"
. Select "Yes"
