    Subject pretty much sums it up. I had switched my start menu in WinXP to classic, then back to default, then back to classic. In the process I lost the my computer icon on my desktop.
    I'm able put it back via the icon that is in the quick lauch toolbar, but then it's just the shortcut icon...which it shouldn't be.
    Anyways, if anyone can help me out, or even if anyone understands what I'm talking about I'd be greatful. [​IMG]
    Thanks.

    In XP, right-click on your desktop picture, to bring up the Display Properties dialog box...
    Click on the Desktop tab, and then the button on at the bottom which says Customize Desktop... You'll be able to figure it out from there... [​IMG]
    It's much easier to restore these icons in XP than it was in 98/ME...
