Loss of Icon on Desktop

HP Recommended
HP Deskjet 3050 J610a
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have somehow recently managed to lose the desktop Icon for my HP Printer/Scanner. I have tried uninstalling it and re-installing it but still no Icon. As a result i am unable to open the printer to see what the ink levels are etc. however I can still print but from the document itself and unable to scan. Can anyone help with how to find and install this icon please.

Hi Alex,

click the Start button on your PC and type Control Panel in the search bar, click on Control panel then Devices and Printers.


Right click on your printer and click Create Shortcut.
