  • Make sure that this display is set to a main display.

    Right-click on the desktop and select Screen resolution.

    Select your new monitor and click Make this my main display.

    Verify that there aren't additional displays where the icons could be.

    An another option.

    Right-click on the desktop and select View --> Show desktop icons.
