Lost icons

Hi. I use an HP Deskjet 27000 All in one series e printer. All the HP desktop icons have disappeared as a result of which I have nothing to open the scanning functions etc.

I was wondering if I could simply go back to when I purchased the laptop and go through the initial set up procedures but all the HP programmes are already installed. If I do so can I safely override the existing programmes and the icons should re-appear.

Are the applications you use still present on the start menu? If so you could start them from there, or drag them to the desk top.

Click Start, scroll to the required item, click and drag it to the desktop.
