View Full Version : Lost Desktop Icon

Have lost the "MY COMPUTER" icon from my desktop. The only way I could replace it was with a shortcut. Any ideas how to get the darn thing back? - Thanks

What version of Windows do you have??

If you have Windows XP or higher try the following.

Right click on the Desktop and go to Properties

go to Desktop and then click on Customise Desktop

Under the General tab put a tick in My Computer
click Ok
Click OK

And then it should be back

You have not indicated which flavour of Windows you have but if you download the TweakUI for your version there is an option in there to fix the icons.

Google will help you locate TweakUI on Microsoft's website.
