All of the Desktop icons have disappeared from my Desktop. How do I get them back?

Try relaunching Finder using the following process:

  1. Click on the black Apple in the upper left corner of the window.
  2. Select Force Quit.
  3. In the Force Quit window, highlight Finder and click on Relaunch.

If this doesn't work, fill out a Web Help Desk work order ticket or call x6688.
