I have saved rental agreements I have printed and I cannot find them on my desktop
When you clicked save, where did you save them to?. You can do a search for what you named them when you saved.
I saved to my desktop screen but I can't get text edit to come up
Can you see the document icons on your desktop? What format are they? Are you using a Mac?
No they are not showing on my screen and yes I have a Mac
You have to find the documents before you can open them. Do a search.
