MAC desktop disappeared....WTF

I just upgraded to Mac OS Monterey 12.3.1
And after all the restart stuff and login, I got my dock back with the windows open that were there before.

One small problem... MY WHOLE FUCKING DESKTOP is empty.
I had lots of files.

I can still find them using Finder, and I can move them onto the desktop, but that's gonna be a lot of work.

Did I screw up? Is there a shortcut to getting the files back onto the desktop without doing them a few at a time?
