    Where did my Desktop shortcuts go?

    I opted to hide the desktop icons, via a right-click on the desktop
    but now I can't un-hide them - right-clicking on the desktop has no effect at all..!!? (???)

    cheers, guys,,

    Shift+F10 did it for me..
    mouse right-click on the desktop wouldn't function after the icons went hidden..

    - didn't realise you can also use Shift+F10 to get to the menu options
