Hi there. Here’s how to retrieve something from the ether, especially, an icon that’s usually on the desktop. If it’s not in the Recycle Bin, you can locate  it using the search field on the Start Menu, click on the item you have searched, E.G. “Word”, right click on it, choose Open File Location, Word should show up there, right click on that, arrow down to Send to Desktop as a shortcut, boom, you should have Word back on your desktop.


I hope this information helps.

Hi Listers,


It’s beyond my skills to understand why this happens, but Word is no longer showing up on my desktop. How do I get it back? It’s still in my computer, just not where I want to grab it.


Thanks for any help.
