    I had the same star like bar saying new item not yet configurated.
    People on the net suggested going to the Panel menu by running xfce-setting-show in the run menu (alt F2) and then delete any panels after the first. But that didnt work for me. I did get the star to move to the bottom of the screen. But now I need to find out how to get the icons back on the bar.

My icon for the battery power monitor has dissapeared from my taskbar can you help me get it back please


Do you have Windows 7? If so, you can right-click on the bottom right corner of your desktop (try right-clicking the time/date), where the icons for volume control, wireless, battery, etc... should be and select Properties. You should then see a screen where you can turn on/off the icons/notifications for battery power (sometimes my volume control disappears and i have to do this.
Otherwise you can go here, Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Notification Area Icons and you should find the same thing. Then just turn on your battery power icon/notifications.
Hope this helps.

No icons or tool bar on desktop at startup


In your desktop, Right click your mouse and properties will show and look for show desktop option. And then move your mouse to the bottom of your computer screen, if toolbar will show, then your toolbar is set to automatic hide. Change the settings in your Taskbar and Start Menu Properties and change there the settings, uncheck the auto hide task bar.

The toolbar has disappeared


Ok, on windows desktop screen right click your mouse, select personalize, click on TASK BAR AND START MENU, pop up will show select TOOLBARs, then check Quicklaunch.

If icon is missing just create short cut to your desktop, then click and drag, then delete shortcut in desktop screen.

This is for vista.

As for XP it should be properties for personalize, then search for the link.

Leave a comment if this is not the exact one.

Desktop problem


It is possible that the task bar is in 'auto hide' First thing you should do is rest your cursor on all four sides of your desktop for a few seconds and see if it appears. If it doesn't than move your cursor to the bottom of the screen and right click and choose 'properties' and uncheck the 'auto ide box'. I am not positive that this well solve your problem, but its the best I can do at the moment. I well research it and find more info, than I well post it for you.
