    Seems silly, but I can't find it!

    Hello

    Have you checked the settings in the taskbar and Start Menu Properties?
    There should be a tab named Notification area.

    In this tab, you find an option; Hide inactive icons.
    You can turn off (disable) this device or you can customize it.
    In addition, you can choose which icons should be available and shows even the Hide inactive icons option would be activated.

    In some cases, these options may be grayed out
    In this case, you will need to find a registry key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion \TrayNotify

    and here you have to delete the keys: + IconStreams + and + PastIconStream +.

    Thanks for sharing everything you already tried... any information help so avoid redundant orientation.

    Please, dig deeply and carefully on all the home screen panels, subfolders, etc... It is easy to accidentally move an icon to a different location. Also, you dig, please make sure that "Show all" is active, just in case you've hidden inadvertently to the icon.

    Good luck and let us know!

  • BlackBerry Smartphone camera icon has disappeared from the home screen. How can I add it back?

    My camera icon has disappeared from all my screens.

    If I use the search function, I can locate and use it.

    Why can't I put the camera icon, press the button of my bb and have an option "add to home screen"?

    I think that 'reset all my icons"can solve the problem, but leaves me with a bunch of fun re-customization.

    Are there no better solution?

    Thank you very much!

    When I did it before, he has not yet shown on the list I think you should MENTION and I checked the properties to, somehow, and the 'hidden' checkbox was not checked.

    But when I tried it now, I see that it is a little different from what I had tried - it worked! Thank you!

    Sometimes the icon simply does not appear due to a start along with many other process resources and the part of MSE to load the icon to not load damage. If you can open MSE and it signals that all is good, it's probably what happened. Sometimes rebooting resolves it.

    Ashwani Hello,

    Thanks for posting on Microsoft Community.

    There are various reasons why a CD or DVD drive may not be detected. I would like to ask all of the steps in the Microsoft Article describes a troubleshooting and check if they help to resolve the issue.

    Your CD-ROM or DVD drive is not recognized by Windows or other programs

    Note:

    Before editing a registry key or subkey, we recommend that you export, or make a backup copy of the key or the subkey. You can save the backup copy to a location that you specify, for example, a folder on your hard drive or a removable storage device. If you make changes that you want to cancel, you can import the backup copy. For more information about backing up the registry, please see the link below.
