I really hate to bother the forum with such a dumb question but .......

I have an HP Scanjet 3500C scanner attached to my W98pc. I haven’t used it for many months. I now find that its icon, that I used to use to activate it, is no longer on my desktop. How can I "find" and activate the device and how can I replace the icon on the desktop? Thank you.

FWIW:

  • The desktop icon I used to use to activate it was called “Photography and Scanners” and would show several options (including Scanner Director).

  • If I go to CP\Scanners and Cameras I still see that the HP Scanjet 3500 Series device is listed.

Desktop icons are merely shortcuts to existing programs. Look for a HP program group in your program listing. The scanner program should be there. Right mouse click on the program and, either, Send to desktop, (which re-creates the shortcut), or Create shortcut and then cut and paste it to your desktop. This assumes that the program was not removed by the Add remove CP, (but since your system does know what the scanner is....
