Icons have disappeared from Windows Desktop

Today my wireless keyboard stopped working. I messed about in Settings and it started to work again, although I don't know what I did.

But now when I start my PC and it takes me to the Windows Desktop all my icons have disappeared and other stuff from the Taskbar, eg. the time.

Can anyone shed any light on this please?

Sorry guys, I've now managed to solve my problem. Through the Help section I discovered that at the right-hand end of the Taskbar there's an icon that looks like a rectangular speech bubble and if you click on it you see 4 buttons one of which is "Tablet mode", and, it seems, I had this switched to On. When I changed it to Off my problem was solved.
