Go down to the windows toolbar at the bottom of your screen, move your cursor into the center of the bar, right click, click properties, the setting is in there to make it reappear

Hi,

if you have XP, right click on the desktop and choose properties. This opens the Display properties box. Click on the Desktop tab and choose the Customize Desktop button on the bottom. In the new popup box called Desktop Items, check My Computer and click OK. It should be there now.

I lost my facebook icon. How do I get it back


You can go to www.facebook.com and sign in there to get your messages.
If you know about that and say "I want an Icon", then you can do that while in Facebook.

Click and hold on the URL Icon of facebook. then drag it to your desktop. Now you'll have the Icon. ...I hope.
Hope this helps.

I just purchased the cd-rom 'the worlds best Mahjong games and I'm trying to install it but I dont get an icon to click on or the word play so I dnt know how to get into the game Please help me my email...


hi,

if you successfully install Mahjong games in default it automatically install in your desktop the game icons. But now a days, program/game makers asking your permission to install the icons in the desktop and shortcut icons in the task bar and if you un check those permission you cannot see a shortcut icons in your desktop.

try to see it in the START Menu Programs. look for the game if there's a drop down menu look for the game icon and right click it. if no drop down menu just right click it. and go to send to and click desktop and now the game icon is already displayed in your desktop.

if you can't see it in START Menu Programs. Please re install it.

Do you have the taskbar going along the bottom of the screen?
If so, do you see the word desktop. close near where the time is?
If so, click on the word desktop. it should open up and show you all your desktop icons.

If not let me know and we will try something else.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
