You might want to check first that the icon you think is missing may only be 'hidden' because the quick-launch bar is not wide enough. What you need to do is widen it to accommodate all the icons. Right-click an empty part of the taskbar and uncheck "lock the taskbar". You should now see a vertical line on the right-hand edge of the quick-launch area. Drag it further to the right with the mouse until any hidden icons appear. Lock the taskbar again when you've finished.

OK. This time. But in the future, mars9339, please start your own new topic rather than jumping into one that someone else started, OK? It makes it just too confusing. Moderators sometimes get involved.
