Desktop items missing

Post by curious »

Don’t know what I did, BUT I am missing some Desktop Items that I ‘created.’ Shortcuts are there.
Of course I can’t remember all of the missing Items. Is there any place to look for them so I can get them back?
I did a System Restore, no luck.

Thank you

System Restore does not affect items on the desktop, as you have found. It only affects system-level items, such as Windows files, installed programs and drivers.

If the deleted items aren't in the Trash, it's unlikely that you will be able to retrieve them. Sorry!
Regards,
Hans

OMG - never thought to look in Trash! Once again you came to my rescue, Hans.
