Lost shortcut icons

  Billawa 19:39 11 Mar 2009

I have had some problems with the computer recently but it now seems to be working OK. However, I have lost all the shortcut icons from the blue strip at the bottom of the screen. I cannot make a short cut on the desktop and transfer it to the blue strip. When I open programmes their icons appear there OK.

Another problem is that System Restore has ceased to function. I had this happen before and have the way of restoring it but this might provide a clue for someone looking at this posting.

Is there a way of (a)getting the shortcut area back and (b)retrieving the shortcuts themselves.

I am running Win XP with SP3.

Thanks to both of you. How quickly we forget the obvious way of doing things! I hope I can help someone at some point.
