thanks, it worked. I sorted by item type and now the icons are back how they should be.

Hi Josh,

Try doing the following.

1.  Move to the desktop and make sure nothing is selected by pressing control + space bar.
2.  Press the windows context key or shift + F10 to bring up the context menu.
3.  This is what I have:
A.  Under the view menu, I have small icons and desktop icons checked.
B.  Under the sort by menu, I have nothing checked.  This seems a bit strange to me, but if that doesn't work, then try checking 'by date.'  This should put the oldest icons first--at or near the top of the listing.

What keyboard commands can I use with NvDA in order to put the icons this pc, and recycle bin back at the top of my list of icons so when I hit the home key, I land on the this pc icon?
