Please Go to Control Panel \ Personalize (or right-click on the desktop and select Personalize), and then choose the link for Change Desktop Icons on the left-hand side. Now you can chose the icons you want back on the desktop by checking the box next to the name. Click the Apply button then ok, and you should see the icon show up on the desktop immediately.

Let me know the results please

Thank you

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
