I am running my Gateway on Vista and the other day I had a crash and was
able to recover from it but now my desktop screen is missing all the
icons that were on it. I have tried to drag icons to the desktop from
the tool bar where I found them. but so far no luck. Anyone have any
tips. No computer icon, no recycling icon and so on. But the desktop
is on the bottom tool bar. I have no idea of how to correct this
anything wold be appreciated. thanks in advance if anyone has a clue.

If you have no icons on the desktop, you might have the view turned off.
Right click on the desktop and the context menu pops up. And select view
and make sure Show Desktop Icons is checked.

Hi BillW50, when I right click on the desktop nothing happens at all. I do
have the tool bar but much prefer having the icons. For some reason I
always get something no one else gets! (grin)

I have looked and looked but nothing seems to work. It is weird Can't
right click on
Desktop nothing happens, no icons at all. they all ended up in the
toolbar. No I did not move them either. Can't even drag and drop to
Desktop. Yes I did insert a background (wallpaper) a picture of my
wife. No problem with that though.

Well how about creating another user logon and see if that one works. If
that works, it means that user account is corrupt.
