    It was probably from your laptop manufacturer. There is a better solution that people that customize desktops love to use and it's free. Give Rocketdock a try. It has a whole community with custom icons etc...

    Do you mean the taskbar? You can move it back to the top by right clicking on it, unchecking Lock Taskbar, dragging the Taskbar to the top, then right clicking and rechecking Lock The Taskbar

    You could contact your manufacturer and retrieve the OEM specific version of the app for your computer, or they should at least be able to tell you how to restore those buttons. :)

    By right-clicking on taskbar, you can choose its properties to access a number of options, such as "location on screen":

    And, of course, RocketDock is a great addition.

    You could always run a quick integrity check.
    Start>>Type "cmd", right click to run as admin>>type "sfc /scannow"
    Windows will automatically fix any violations.
    Not entirely sure if it will help here, but worth a try.
