I don't know what you call it, but it was the icon that allowed me to open up and selecting scanning, etc. By the way the printer is connected and prints from my other programs.

Ok, first lets check to make sure all the HP software is still installed.
1. Click the Start Orb in the bottom left of your screen
2. Type "Uninstall" in the search box and select the result titled "uninstall a program"
3. Once here look for anything that begins with HP. See if all the printer software is still here.
If not we will need to reinstall the software. Let me know what you find.

Ok. It sounds like the software has been uninstalled somehow. Lets reinstall all the software. Download the driver pack here: HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers
Once it is finished run the software and let it finish. This should reinstall the software and place a new icon on your desktop. Let me know if this resolve the issue.

Hello babs123. Try these steps to get an icon for the printer on the desktop.
1. Go into Printers and Faxes (Windows XP), Printers (Windows Vista), Devices and Printers (Windows 7 and 8).
2. You should see an icon for the Laserjet M1210. Drag the icon from that folder onto an empty space on the desktop.
3. Try to run it from the desktop.
Let me know if this assists you or not. I'm only here to help!
