I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite lAptopC-55-B5298 8.1

On a Windows 8 machine you have two places to put an icon for a program.

1. The start menu on windows 8 which is the first set of icons you see.

2. The Desktop, which is like the Windows 7 desktop and you put a shortcut here.
This is easy to do as you right click with the mouse and pick "new" then "shortcut".
Then pick browse and pick out the program file you want to run when the icon is pressed.
Then press "OK" and it is stored on the desktop.

On the start menu you have to go to the bottom of the icons to the down arrow.
Press the down arrow and it will take you to the "Apps", which is the list of installed program.
Then scroll sideways to the right until you see the program you want on the screen.
Pick the icon of the program you want on the start menu, with the right hand key of the mouse.
On the menu that pops up, pick "pin to start menu", and its done.
You can re-arrange the icons on the start menu by dragging them around with the mouse.

Sign in on toshiba moves to start but arrow disappears so it wont work

If the cursor highlight is positioned over the START button (icon) then you can select it by pressing ENTER or SPACE bar, which is the keyboard equivalent of double clicking with the mouse. To move between the fields, press the TAB key (shift TAB to go backwards or to the previously selected field).

However, the question is not clearly stated...

My laptop's (Toshiba Satellite A105-S361)desktop doesn't bring the desktop icons and the task bar after I loaded AVG 9 antivirus software. Why is that? Would you mind give me a solution, pls?

The desktop icons and the task bar would generally dissappear if you have a virus on the PC. However, sometimes improper software installations may cause undesired results like we have right now. Instead of trying uninstalling anything, try restoring the system to a previous point using system restore.

It could be that the screen is at the correct resolution, but the icons are just set to display larger (Vista allows this). Right-click on the desktop (NOT over any icons), and select "View". there you can select the size of the desktop icons.
