    Good evening,

    I am a bit of a newbie to forums and computers and some of my icons in my launchpad have disappeared.

    Is there a solution to this solute that can be explained in fairly simple words.

    Some of the threads state there is a solution but where's terminal? etc.

    A step by step guide would really be helpful

    Thanks

    PK

    Just a note from a non-techie...

    If you don't even know where Terminal is...don't go there when you find out where it is!

    It's about the only place on your computer where an inexperienced user can really do some serious damage.

    For the well informed, it's very useful.

    For me (the idiot) it's a deep, dark scary place!:eek:


    :) ;)

    Is there a possibility that you have deleted the icon cache? If you are using apps like cleanmymac or onyx, they will delete those caches. If this is the case, restarting the computer should solve the problem.
