Occasionally a user will accidentally click on wrong place and all their desktop icons will be gone. They won’t be able to find the icons anywhere on the desktop. All their My Computer and My Documents shortcuts will be missing and even their recycling bin will be gone. They will be left with a plain background or a wallpaper.
It is easy to bring them back! Simply right click on your desktop, go to Arrange Icons By and then select Show Desktop Icons.
Wait several seconds and your desktop icons will be back.
