    Snake_Doctor Call me Snake...

    I Have windows 8 :(
    Last night I was having wifi issues and kept hitting desktop. Some symbols appeared at the bottom of the screen and I ignored them. Het if you push on one thing the rest go away, right? I've tried every command I could think of but I cant get it back. I refreshed my comp hoping that would work. No luck, just three and a half wasted hours. If I inert a flash drive desktop pops up with the flash contents . I'm not a computer person. Is there a simple way an idiot like me can get it back?
    Thanks in advance.

    Before I use the flash drive it's just that bunch of pa
    nes for the apps. None of that has changed. After inserting a flash drive desktop shows up and it looks the same as always. The pane for desktop has vanished however.
