Missing Icon in Control Panel - XP

  caesar 17:09 16 Nov 2004

I've inadvertently deleted the Printer/Fax icon from the Control Panel. Also it's not in the Recycle Bin as that was emptied before I realised the icon was missing.

How do I get it back. Needed to set up simple domestic wireless network to remote print Wireless connected Laptop from the wired PC.

What O/S is your comp running on?

Control Panel - Tools - Folder Options - Restore Defaults, maybe.

How did you manage that?

I tried to delete it, and it will not delete. Hitting the delete icon on the tool bar, or the delete key on the k'board have no effect.

I can't even see the option in tweek-UI to hide it.

Fredski, i think there is a small clue in the title to this thread. ;-)

I find it hard that windows will allow you delete this folder as it's a system folder. But if you can let me know what O/S your on I can run a test

Fredski, there is a small clue...^

It's not missing or just change control panel to classic view

Changing to Category view and then back to Classic has restored it.

Thanks for everyone's help...
