Icon "Remove hardware" suddenly disappeared. How can I get that back?

I tried all the options I can find, including:

  • Go to customize notifications and ensuring that the latter is not hidden
  • If you type RunDll32. exe shell32.dll, Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll in regedit: the dialog box "safely remove...". "is launched - but shows no hardware to remove, even if I have something connected

Any other suggestions?

MP3 devices that use Microsoft provided DPW (aka integrated) pilots would not show.   You should see the MP3 player as a separate device under "My Computer" section.

Scanners are not a direct storage device and seems to not require a "synchronization" of the files before disconnecting them.

I had my USB wireless adapters show up in the old windows, but now, they do not appear in "risk-free" delete the section.

  • My calendar disappeared; How can I get that back?

    This morning when I opened outlook, my calendar disappeared.
    I am running Windows XP with 31.1.2 Thunderbird and Lightning (active) 3.3.1.
    Calendar is now grayed out under view.

    The last important thing I did last night was to delete several messages and my folders compact.

    I received many emails and added several calendar items since my last backup (4 days ago) and I'd rather not have to go back to that.

    Why the calendar disappeared and how can I get it back?

    Calendar under view selection is always grayed out unless you have the open calendar and you view the Calendar tab. You open the calendar under the events and tasks on the calendar. The shortcut is Ctrl + Shift + c.

  • I had a bookmark that seems to have disappeared - how can I get that back

    I did not remove this bookmark and cannot find in anywhere in my favorites or my scrap basket. Is it possible to get it back?

    Have you tried a search in case you accidentally move to another folder?

    If you've accidentally deleted bookmarks, then use "organize > Cancel ' in the Bookmark Manager (Bookmarks > show all bookmarks) to recover.

    Hold the button is the first of three buttons next to the back and forward buttons on the toolbar in the library (Bookmark Manager).

    That only works if you have not closed Firefox.

    If it does not work so that you can restore bookmarks from a JSON backup.

    This will replace all current bookmarks and you lose the favorites that have been added since the backup was created.


    In this case, you need to export current bookmarks to an HTML file before you perform the restore and import this HTML file after you restore the backup JSON.

  • change the size of the icon screen '100% ' disappeared. How can I get that back.

    I had my computer fixed recently.  No, I have to change the size of the content on the screen to go when I'm on the internet?  I use 100% by the icon at the bottom of my screen and it has now disappeared.  How can I get that back?  Why have I to change the size of the Web page after my computer has been repaired?

    I guess you're talking about Internet Explorer...
    He could reappear if you turn on the status bar.  To enable it, start Internet Explorer, and then
    View-> toolbars-> and make sure that there is a check in front of the "status bar".
    If you do not have a menu 'View' then press the 'Alt' key once.

    Also, you should be able to go to 100% by pressing the 'Ctrl' key while pressing "0" (zero).

    You can also zoom in and out by holding down the 'Ctrl' key and turning the mouse wheel.

    High graphics most of range, the cards are equipped with display rotation built in and adjustable via display properties or via the display properties of the display icon in the Notification area (to the left of the system clock).  It is a nice feature if you want to read things more like a book on your laptop, etc.

    Some examples would be ATI, NVIDIA, Intel, Matrox, S3, XGI...  These adapters can be integrated into your system, and not always his own card.

    This phenomenon of rotation screen sometimes inadvertently some keystrokes (the cat walked on my keyboard).

    Pressing on the keys Ctrl-Alt top/arrow down arrow rotates screen 90 degrees at a time for some graphics (like NVIDIA) cards

    If this does not work, we will need to know your system brand and model and see if we can look at the rotating screen for you shortcut keys.

    Do, or do not. There is no test.
