    Someone i know has cleaned up my computer for free and taken all the unessasatry software of my computer today,
    but he wiped my desktop and i cant put items on the desktop,
    I dont know how i can access my recycle bin and things like that,
    I dont think i will be able to cantact him for a couple of days, but id really appreaciate being able to sort this out quickly

    Is this a setting on Windows you can use?
    How do you change it back?
    Ive Tryed going into "personalise " and setting the desktop items, they dont appear.
    Thanks.

    right click on the desktop and click on Personalize. On the top-left corner there should be a link called "Change Desktop Icons" A window should pop up and you should be able to check which icons should appear on the desktop.
