Blank page


I believe you are talking about short-cuts on the desktop.

If you have the program on the Start Menu you can copy the shortcut there and paste it into the desktop to restore the icon.

If the icon produces blank pages, it may have been a program that required a specific command to install it. Once you have deleted it, the only way to restore the icon properly is to re-install the program and tick "put short-cut on desktop".

Lost all icons from desktop


The use of desktop icons has served to simplify opening and using programs in Microsoft Windows.
With a simple click of the mouse, an entire program can be opened.
Unfortunately those desktop icons can also be deleted, sometimes accidentally or sometimes by the desktop cleaning utility that runs in Windows, but there is a simple process to recover desktop icons.
Just follow these steps.

Click it without a ticket.
To restore lost desktop icons, first place your mouse anywhere in a blank area on your desktop. Once you have placed your cursor in an unused area of the desktop, right click.
Check the pop up.
Once you have right-clicked your mouse in the unused area of your desktop you will receive a pop up menu or prompt.
Choose "Properties" by left clicking it with your mouse.

Grab that tab. Once you have clicked on "Properties" you will receive a dialog box.
Click on the tab labeled "Desktop."
Customize it.
Once you have clicked the "Desktop" tab choose "Customize Desktop" which will prompt another dialog box to open.
From there click on the "General" tab.
Restore order.
After you have clicked the "General" tab you will see a list of icons.
Simply choose the icons you want restored or placed on the desktop and then click "OK."
That's it.
You have now successfully restored your desktop icons.

You can access google earth from any browser.
If you are having problems with your shortcuts, you may have the security centre virus.
Try a full scan with malwarebytes.
Try a system restore if you do not have a virus infection.

Google Earth disappeared after updating Adobe Reader 9


Try to do a system restore, this should help you to get the application back. On the start search, type restore, select system restore, on the system restore screen choose the option which says select another restore point, hit next, choose the restore point when the system was working fine, hit next, let the computer go through the restore process. When computer restarts normally, you should be able to use the google earth.
For any additional help with your hp computer you can alway visit hp.com/support and get a free chat support.
Hope you find this information helpful.

Google Earth


I have a LX5 cordless mouse that was part of my S510 desktop set. Prior to this set I had a seperate USB keyboard and generic optical usb mouse. I noticed after installing the SetPoint software that i lost all use of the middle mouse button. Here's how you can restore the use of the middle button. SetPoint reassigns the middle button so that it no longer functions as the default middle button function. This can be changed in the SetPoint configuration. (Look for the icon in your system tray) Click on My Mouse and select the middle button. It's number 3 on my list and was originally titled zoom, but, clicking on a button name will give you a picture of the button location on the picture to the left. Once you locate the middle wheel button, in column next to the list, under select task, select other, then from the drop down list, select middle button. apply and save your settings by clicking ok. pan and tilt will now work properly in google earth.
