but it just doesnt show them it only shows icons any ideas ?What do you mean by this? If there are icons on the desktop, the files are showing, surely.

EDIT: Do you mean only the usual desktop icons such as "Computer" "Trash" "Home" etc etc, rather than the icons for downloaded files? Personally, I have always downloaded to a separate folder in home called Downloads as I hate having junk on my desktop. Try that and see if it helps, though I can't imagine why you don't get the files showing on the desktop at the moment.
