Put icon back in toolbar

Hi,
I somehow removed all my icons from the start menu and I've attempted to put them back. But the icon that is usually in the toolbar near the clock is gone. This icon tells me how much space is on the drive and its health and such. please advice.

Left click on the toolbar, then select properties. Then click on the tab that says notification area, then select the ones you want. I don't know if that's all the icons you wanted. Hope it helps.

    Also for the start menu problem right click on the toolbar and select properties and go to start menu, then select start menu tab and click customize and that should be how you get those icons back.

How did I accidentally remove the e for enternet symbol on the bottom of the screen and how do I get it back?


Put a shortcut for Internet Explorer on the desktop and then drag it down to the toolbar at the bottom. It will then restore it. If you have put too many icons on the toolbar it may disappear as it cannot be displayed. You then need to unlock the toolbar to see all the icons.

Remove the drop down icon bar on sony vaio


Usually, with a dropdown toolbar, you can put the cursor all the way to the top of the screen and with the toolbar visible, right click on it to activate a control menu from which you can stop it from dropping down, unlock it and move it to either sidr, or even turn it off altogether.

If this doesn't work, try entering yout laptop model name in Google search followed by "disable dropdown toolbar" for blogs and forums for your laptop model that may have a specific command or trick for your machine.

Good Luck

How to put program type on tool bar


  1. Adding Icons to the Task Bar

    1. Click on the Start Menu to open it
    2. Click on "Programs" and find the program for which you want to create an icon
    3. Move your mouse pointer to the program you want to use
    4. Depress and hold down the right mouse button while you drag the icon to the Quick Launch toolbar section of the Task Bar
    5. When you release the right mouse button, a short menu will appear
    6. Choose "Create Shortcut(s) Here." An icon will be created in the Quick Launch toolbar on the Taskbar

  2. Deleting Icons from the Task Bar

    1. Move the mouse pointer to the icon you want to delete
    2. Right-click on the icon
    3. Choose "Delete" from the short menu that appears. The icon has been deleted, but the program is still available to you on your hard disk

    NOTE: If you have carefully followed the steps above to add the icon to your Quick Launch toolbar, deleting it will NOT delete the program from your computer, it will simply remove the icon from your toolbar. The program will still be available to you.

Also you can "Drag" the program, to the bar, and "Drop" it on it. Check out a freeware application called StartupCPL at http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml. This places a Startup icon in your Control Panel which, when opened, lists all applications on your PC with a check box for each one. Simply put a check mark in each application you want to open minimized on startup. By the way, it states it is for Windows ME and 2000, but I have had it on XP for quite a while and it works fine.

I somehow delted the icon for my internet browser


Hi. To get your browser icon back, (probably it's been hidden) you only need to go to your main menu, press the menu button again, and you should see the "Show All" option, select it and now you'll see the hidden icons in grey color. When you come over the hidden icons and press menu button, you can select to hide or show them. And when you do the "Show All" steps again and select it again, this time you'll hide your icons selected as hidden. Hope this helps.

Using your toolbar preferences you can move them back to the bottom and then click the lock taskbar option to prevent this from happening again. You can access this by right mouse clicking on the taskbar then select properties. Hope this helps.
