    Hi, I'm a new Mac user. My MBA runs Mountain Lion 10.8.2. Then I realised that some icons on my Desktop Menu Bar, Safari Menu Bar and Finder Menu Bar are missing. Here are some snapshots:

    Desktop Menu Bar:
    Safari Menu Bar:
    Finder Menu Bar:

    I need help to fix this. I've been looking for the solution for days but up till now I still couldn't find any. Please help me :( THANKS :D

    You might try disk permission fix using Disk Utility.

    Open Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility (or Command+Spacebar, begin typing Disk Utility & click Return)

    Select your hard drive and then:

    I looked on Apple's Support Community and this was occurring to numerous people back in November 2012.

    One poster discovered that booting into Safe Mode corrected things, this was confirmed by several others.

    I'd give this a shot. Good luck, if it works, please let us know. :)

    I hate to resurrect an old thread, but this just happened to me too (missing icons from Finder and Safari) and Safe Boot seems to have fixed it. Running Yosemite 10.10.1
