    I don't know what I did, but all my desktop icons are gone - but at the top
    of my desktop - there is a grey bar with stuff in it. How do I get my Icons
    back on the desktop the way they use to be? They are all gone?!

  2. To display Deskop icons:

    Right-click on Deskop -> 'View' -> 'Show Desktop Icons'

    The grey bar at the top is a user-created toolbar. On the left end, there
    should be a dotted vertical line. Right-click the line & select 'Close

    It makes no sense to reply that old a post. Nobody today has a clue
    what you're posting about, and nobody from that time period is even
    monitoring the thread.
