My neighbour tells me that she accidentally changed her usual blue desktop background to a photo. She managed (somehow- she can't explain how) to get back the plain blue but now all her desktop icons have vanished. I tried talking her through a solution to create new icons by copying one at a time from All programmes and pasting them on the desktop, but she then gets an error message that "this icon already exists in this location". Any solutions, please. OS is vista

I suspect that she has been fiddling around with her right click on the desktop to personalise the desktop and has accidentally turned off her icons. Right click on the desktop, then select view and then check that show desktop icons is ticked.

thanks very much Woolwell - she's now done that and all is well again. I had never noticed that option in the menu.
