Try rebooting in "safe mode", by holding 'F8' as soon as you start your system, until the black screen with several boot options shows up. Select "safe mode with Networking". If you can boot it up and see your icons again, try a "system restore" to a time when it worked properly -maybe a few days ago?
To do a system restore:
"Start"
"Programs"
"accessories"
"System tools"
"System Restore"
"Restore my computer to an earlier time"

I hopes, please let me know.

Microsoft To fix this problem, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click All Programs.
  2. Click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and select Run as administrator.

Apple Couple of different approaches could potentially work:

Usually you will just click on the jellybean to get it back. Watch the Youtube video to see how easy this is. If this does not work, try one of the steps below.

1. Close all finder windows so when you click the finder icon it opens a new finder window, one with no sidebar. Then go View>Show Toolbar
Then once the toolbar is enabled, the view/hide sidebar toggle becomes activated in that same menu.

2. Close all finder windows so when you click the finder icon it opens a new finder window, one with no sidebar. Then go View>Show Toolbar
Then once the toolbar is enabled, the view/hide sidebar toggle becomes activated in that same menu.

3. Does it show only "FAVORITES" on the sidebar? Move your mouse a little to the right of it, until it says "Show" and press it.

4. If the sidebar is open and items are just missing, then moving the mouse just slightly to the right of the text will reveal a "Show" link.
However, if the sidebar is missing completely from the finder window, simply key option/command/s at the same time to reveal the sidebar. You can also simply hover over View > Show/Hide Sidebar.

5. Click on FINDER, then Preferences. Click on General tab near the top. Half way down "New Finder windows show" (Drop down menu) Click on it.
Choose your scenario. Should work after that.

6. It is possible somehow the Sidebar became hidden by pulling the center bar that separates the Sidebar from the right side viewing pane to the LEFT.
Make sure your Finder/View has Show Sidebar; then try placing your mouse to the far left and see if you get an "i" bar so you can drag it to the right which will make the Sidebar viewable again.

Tool bar for computer gone how do i find tool bars in my computer


"FILE, EDIT or VIEW" options on the top.

  1. Open Internet Explorer, and make sure that it is running properly. If you receive any error messages upon opening it, your best bet is to reinstall Explorer rather than customize the options as new add-ons have likely caused serious problems. If it runs properly, however, continue to the next step.
  2. Check to see that the menu bar is visible. If the menu bar is missing, you will have to make it reappear. Right-click anywhere below the "Title Bar" (the bar which shows the Internet Explorer icon and the name of the current website) and any other visible menu bars. Then be sure that the "Menu Bar" has a check mark beside it on the window that appears. Click "Menu Bar" if there is no check.
  3. Click on "View" in the menu bar. Then click on "Toolbars" from that menu. This will bring up a list of available tool bars. To make the one you want appear, simply click its name, making sure that a check appears next to the name.
  4. Restart Internet Explorer. Some toolbars will reappear immediately. Others require a restart. But restart the application anyway to make sure that your new preferences are saved.
  5. Reinstall any extra toolbar applications if they do not appear in the Toolbar menu.
Please try this and see if anything help's.
