Desktop shortcuts disappeared


New Member
I'm not sure what they are actually called but those shortcuts for internet, e-mail, music player etc that would either be along the bottom or top of the desktop have disappeared and I can't get them back.

Any help is appreciated

Did you try right-click on desktop > view > show icons ?

Yes I did try that

If I'm understanding you correctly, would it usually be located on the taskbar? If so, go to start and select all programs and find the app you want to place back there. Right click the app and select Pin to taskbar.
