Desktop Icons

  jaritch 10:39 15 Nov 2006


A friend who has a new laptop has a problem with desktop icons. Whenever you try to drag one it does not appear on the desktop. She has no icons. Tried to drag a shortcut for Word from the start menu and it asked if I wished to replace the existing file. She can get nothing on it. They are obviously there already but not showing. Probably something simple that i am not aware of. can anyone help?
