The recycle bin icon has disappeared from the desktop.Can you help?


Hello

Firstly, what operating system are you using? I am going to give you steps to fix this in both xp and vista.

Windows XP:
  1. Right click any blank area of your desktop. In the menu that comes up, click on “Properties.”
  2. Step 2 Click on the “Desktop” tab, and then click on the “Customize Desktop” button.
  3. Step 3 On the “General” tab, you will see a field with some standard desktop icons. Click on the “recycle bin” icon and then click on “Restore Default.” Click “OK,” and then “Apply,” and finally “OK” again. You should see your recycle bin back in its spot on your desktop. If your recycle bin is still not appearing on your desktop, try the next steps.
  4. Step 4 Right click a blank area of your task bar, point to “Toolbars,” and then click on “Desktop.”
  5. Step 5 Click on the double carets (>>) next to “Desktop” on your taskbar. Look for your recycle bin in the menu that comes up.
  6. Step 6 Drag the recycle bin from the menu to your desktop by clicking on it with your mouse, holding the mouse button down, and moving it to the desktop.
Windows Vista:

First, right-click on the Desktop and select Personalize. In the dialog box on the right hand side, there should be an option called Change desktop icons.

On the Change desktop icons dialog box, go ahead and check the Recycle Bin box to add that back to your desktop. You’ll notice that there is a Full Recycle Bin and Empty Recycle Bin icon.
restore-recycle-bin-thumb.png
If you click Apply, your icon should now be back on the desktop.


Really hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea

Hard disk icon disappeared from desktop


To add the hard disk icon back onto your desktop, first click the "Finder" button in the dock. It is the dark and light smily face icon at the end of the dock.

Next, click the "Finder" menu item at the top of the screen and then "Preferences". In the "Finder Preferences" window that opens, click the "General" button. From there you can select what system items appear on your desktop. You can click "Hard disks" to re-add the hard disk icon.

No programs works with vista


Legacy programs often do not run on Vista. However, once you install them there are a few options. First of all, go to the program websites and see if they have Vista upgrades. If not, right-click on the program icon and select properties. On the properties screen, select the compatibility tab and select Windows XP SP2. That often works. Also, you may have to right-click on the icon and select run as administrator.
