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.

ok, i won say i understand what u sed **** if u wana go to an earlier state and when ur pc had a desktop! u will need to back it up from a previous restore point, but the problem that u might not have one, so try this:
start > programes > accesories > system tools > system restore....if its turned on and u have a restore point than do it....if its not and ur are just talkin about desktop icons u can right click any where on the desktope, point to arrange icons by , and click to show desktope icons. :)

Toshiba equium laptop - have lost all icons on startup screen


Try this...turn on the computer, let it get to your windows screen. Then go to Help and Support (on the Startup button), then go to System Restore. Restore your system to any earlier date, that's the easiest fix. Otherwise, I don't know any easy way to fix that.
