Unless you pasted them somewhere, they're gone unless you had a 3rd party program designed to save them.

What do you mean by Used on my Desktop? Do you want to use the pictures as wallpaper? or just to view the pictures? To view the pictures, just go to the folder and click on one.
If you want to use one of the pictures as your default wallpaper, you can Right click the picture and choose Make Desktop Background. Or Right click the Desktop/Properties/Desktop and Browse to a picture in a folder.
If you want the pictures in My Documents to be in the Selection within the Default selections, then Right click the Desktop/Properties/Desktop. Browse to C:\Windows\Web and drop your pictures there. They will show up with the other default selections.
