Using Sparky 5.3 Mate

Have done a recent install and completely forgotten how to have the Computer and Trash icons displayed on the Desktop. :(  Would some kind person on the Forum give me a gentle reminder how to achieve this, please?

Thank you for your prompt reply but unfortunately, neither of them explained how I could show the Computer and Trash icons on the Desktop.

Yes, it does.
Check opt:
3 Click  org -> mate -> caja -> desktop.
and
4 The picture above shows the options of computer-icon-visible, home-icon-visible, and trash-icon-visible. Un-tick that three options which will hide the home, trash, and computer icon from desktop. The result will be like the picture below.

My sincere apologies to Penguin for my previous hasty reply and thanks to Pavroo for leading me on the correct path.  I hadn't realised I did not have dConf Editor installed.  Installing it and following Pavroo's instructions led to the solution. 

Both of you have made a sad geriatric very happy. :)
