icon vanished

Can't remember the name but the icon which contains further icons for the 'To Do' list, Calculator, Word, Excel etc has disappeared!
I had quite a lot of stuff in the To Do lists & am keen not to loose it.
Can anyone tell me how to retrieve these folders and put the icon back on the main screen.
Also any hints as to how I might have managed to loose it in the first place?

Re: icon vanished

Look in your Applications folder (where those applications are routinely placed).

 

You might have accidentally hidden or moved the icons.

 

1. On your homescreen, press the Menu key > SHOW ALL, so that SHOW ALL is checked.
2. Look in EACH folder on your device... Applications, Instant Messengers, Downloads, etc.
If you still don't see it, look at Options > Advanced > Applications. Do you see it listed there?

Re: icon vanished

Thanks, but...
When I press Menu in the Homescreen I don't get 'Show All' in the menu only 'Move, Move to Folder, Hide, Add Folder and Switch Application'.
I can't find it in any of the other folders.
I can't see it in Options>Advanced>Applications

Re: icon vanished

Ok, if not "show all", then nothing is hidden, that's good.

 

At options > Advanced > applications, do you see Tasks (not ToDo) or Memos listed?

On that screen do you have an "add-on" drop down box at the upper right?

 

What is your Operating System loaded to your device?
Look at Options > About, third line down beginning with a "v.4.x.xxx"
What is yours?

Re: icon vanished

I've gone to Tasks but there is no "add-on" drop down box. It just lists:

 

"Tasks Properties

Description:   A To-Do list application

Version:                                           4.6.1

Copyright:                    1998-2008 RiM

Modules: (1)

net_rim_bb_task_app"

 

There is nothing top right.

 

The Operating System is v4.6.1.272 (platform 4.2.0.118)

 

In that folder there was also Calculator, Word, Excel, Powerpoint etc.

I'm hoping that if the folder is still there then all those will still be intact?

OK, you don't need to look for the "Add-On" if you've already found the actual application you're looking for.

Then they are installed... just keep looking for them.

Re: icon vanished

Everything has come back! I don't know how but all folders are back where they used to be!
It seems that they all just took a sabatical for a few days.
Thanks for your help, although I don't understand why the folder went & why it's now come back.
