In Windows 8 how do I recover missing apps?

While operating my ASUS Notebook (Window 8) yesterday (30th September), I opened the Settings menu in the Charms menu and clicked ‘PC setting Change’ and then hit the Refresh button out of curiosity.

To my awe and consternation, the tiles and the Applications, with their Shortcuts/icons on the Desktop, were gone. As such I am unable to operate it, with my feeble knowledge, I can’t locate information on how to restore my desktop icons. Somehow the tiles have reappeared. But the Applications have not.

Only two icons appear when I reopen the Desktop — removed Applications and Recycle Bin.

I am not a computer engineer nor a technician.

Help me and give guidance, step-by-step, to go about to reach my destination. Thanks.
