When you first got your computer, it probably had shortcuts for My Computer, My Documents, My Network Places, and the Recycle Bin on the desktop. If you or someone else removed any of those shortcuts and you’d like to get them back, you can easily restore them.
To restore you icons
Right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.
In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Desktop tab, and then click Customize Desktop.
In the Desktop icons area in the Desktop Items dialog box, select the desktop icons that you want to appear on your desktop.
Click OK again.
The icons you selected will be displayed on your desktop.
