How do I get my desktop icons back on my home screen in Windows 7?

Stephanie has a good answer for this, but here's a link to the Windows 7 help page in case you need it later:
Go to Control Panel \ Personalize (or right-click on the desktop and select Personalize), and then choose the link for “Change Desktop Icons” on the left-hand side.

Now you can chose the icons you want back on the desktop by checking the box next to the name:

Click the Apply button, and you should see the icon show up on the desktop immediately.
