    I used to have an icon "My computer" on the desktop but for what ever reason it disappeared.
    How can I get it back ? I use Windows XP Professional.

    Thanks for your help

    Right-click the desktop and select Properties. This will open your Display Properties. In there, select the Desktop tab > Customize Desktop... Put a check mark on My Computer.
