Get the Icons Back on the Desktop

Get the Icons Back on the Desktop

As with previous versions, the Recycle Bin is the only icon that by default appears on the desktop of Windows 7, as Figure 1 shows.

However, you can still make the Computer, User's Files, or Network icons appear.

Here's how:

  1. Right-click anywhere on the desktop and select Personalize.
  2. On the Personalization window, click the Change desktop icons link on the left pane.
  3. Choose which icons you want on the desktop (see Figure 2) and click OK.
