Hello, on your desktop right click.-->hover over the veiw tab and let it expand. at the bottom of that list thier is an option to "show desktop icons". be sure this is checked.
Icons should now appear on you desktop. open your start menu and expand the folders of the icons you would like to have on your desktop or open the windows explorer to the items. right click and go to "send to"-->"desktop(create shortcut)" this will place a shortcut icon onto your desktop. this can be done for any file, folder, or program. hope this information was helpful.

Lost all icons from desktop


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."
Customize it.
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.
Restore order.
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."
That's it.
You have now successfully restored your desktop icons.

Accidentally removed all screen icons and cannot find out how to replace them.


If all you did was delete the icons from the desk top restore them is possible.
First try system restore. Go to START, HELP, type System Restore and follow the instructions. Restore your system to a point in time when the icons were there, say one day earlier this week.
Another way is to go to START, select the program you want to have on icon on the desktop, right click and hold on the program, drag it to the desktop release and "create short cut here"
Hope this helps. I do this for fun & feed back not $$$

No desktop Icons


Troubleshooting first:
  1. does it start? Yes: go to its BIOS and set your CD drive to be the first one to boot. Read the screen menu on what to press to enter BIOS or read manual. No: Check your power supply if it is properly plugged and the battery for it might be loose.
  2. does it display your windows start button? Yes: right click on the display and select arrange icons by: then select "show desktop icons". No: your computer might not have proper boot up. need to restore and follow the above solution.

Restore active desktop


As the icons have increased in size that means ur screen resolution has changed

Goto desktop
right click on desktop  >>  Properties  >>  settings tab 
now u will find the Screen Resolution adjust it according to ur requirement and u will find ur icon size small again  ( if u increase the screen resolution)

For internet settings Create a New Connection Wizard
or u can check from Network Connection whether ur Local Area Network is Enable or not.

Thank You
