I am using windows XP and the control panel icon has disappeared from the Start menu, has anyone any thoughts on what I have done?

Hi, try closing down and restarting, see if it reappears.


Do System Restore, just to yesterday or whenever it was there before.

Start Menu/Run, type


press return, click Taskbar & Start Menu, click Start Menu tab, click Customize, click Advanced tab, at the top of the list you should see Control Panel, tick `Display as a link`, click OK, OK again, job done.
