Another easy one for somebody out there... Instead of icons appearing ON my desktop, I have a toolbar which has all of the desktop icons on it. I want to return it to "normal." In addition, My Computer has been renamed to some weird number (probably a network designation in it's past life) and with only 128 mg of RAM and a 6 gb (that's no typo, six gigabyte) harddrive, we shouldn't even have this machine. But what's done is done,... how can I fix this desktop thing? Thanks!
RTG :eek:

Can you move the shortcuts from the Tool Bar to the desktop, then delete the toolbar?

Thought that was a good idea but it wouldn't let me do it. It probably is something simple like that, though.

Knew it was probably something simple. Right clicked on the desktop and selected "Arrange Icons By" and from that menu, "Show Desktop Icons" and that did it.
