First step: find and follow the right steps

All of my desktop icons and files disappeared

I’m using my desktop to keep some shortcuts and also to store some files that I work with or just downloaded from internet. A few days ago all of my desktop icons and files disappeared. However, when I go to Computer->Desktop the icons and files are still presented and available. I saw other users having similar problems but no proper solution for the problem.

OK. Most of the time in this situation, the solution is very simple:

1. Right Click on Desktop

2. Go to View Menu

3. Select “Show Desktop Icons”
