Hi, I accidentally deleted the shortcut (Computer) on the 'Devices' menu in finder. Does anyone know how to put it back on there?

Here is a pic so you can hopefully understand my problem better.

Hi Luke. To restore the "Computer" to your Finder sidebar, do this:

Open Finder and go to Finder > Preferences
Click the "Sidebar" icon
Recheck the "Computer" checkbox

Or alternatively, you can open up a Finder window, go to Computer (if your Finder window opens up the HDD by default, use Cmd + Up Arrow to go to Computer), and drag the icon at the top to Devices in the Sidebar.

Try the same tip from post #2 above.
Finder Preferences.
Click the "Sidebar" icon
Under "Devices", check the box for "Hard disks"
