  1. Lost my scanner icon then my control panel.


    I lost my scanner icon and then my control panel was missing. I did some searches on it to no avail.

    Well, I got to checking it out myself.

    The directions to get my scanner icon back on the start menu works without much fuss.

    Hope it works for you.


    1. Settings

    2. devices

    3. Related settings

    4. L click devices & printer

    5. Pick your device L click

    6. R click on scanner

    7. L click pin to start



    PS I got my control panel back on the start menu but it would not move and could not click on it.

    I rebooted the system and it now works. How I got it back on the start page, I really don't know

    but it is there and working, that is all I care about.


    Wish they would stop updating other than bugs, everytime they they try to "improve" I lose something.


    Good Luck everyone.


    My first time on here.

    :)

    The Control Panel (Category View)

    My apologies, Brink but I still do not get it.

    The steps for both options are identical, the only difference is the location of the desired icons will need to be accessible for all users for Option 2. That's it.

    Moreover, both the Mail and Flash Player (32-bit) applets are not listed in the list of Control Panel items for both options.


    Regards,
