If your running windows xp go to start>controll panel>add and remove programs. To the left there should be something that says add/remove windows components go on that and double click on to accessories and utilitys then double click on accesories and you should see calculator, make sure it is ticked. Hope this helps!

Try this, create a shortcut on your desktop then drag it into your Start - Programs menu as follows.
Right click on an empty space on your desktop and select New.. then Shortcut.
click on Browse then navigate to c:\windows\system32\calc.exe.
This will create the calculator shortcut on your desktop.
Drag the icon down to your start button and keep dragging into the program menu. release it where ever you want in the program menu.

What operating system are you using?

If you are using XP you can navigate to the following directory: C:\WINDOWS\system32

Look for Calc.exe and Notepad.exe and right click each and select "Pin to Start Menu"
