[SOLVED] can't store data on desktop

Hello guys, I am a new arch user. I can't store any files on my desktop. For instance, ranger displays created or copied files on desktop but visually it's a clean window. How can I fix it?
Thank you in advance!

What desktop environment do you use? Some do not display icons on the desktop, by design.

Moved to Newbie Corner.

Since Arch does not include a desktop out of the box, you just might want to start by telling us what Desktop Environment / Desktop Manager you are using.

Edit:  Half a minute late.

Gnome no longer supports files on the desktop.   You may be able to use this extension to restore this functionality....
