Hi everyone,

This is a very stupid question for someone who have been using Mac for many years.

I have several Macs at home and all of my Macs are using Lion, I also have a new Mac Mini that come with Lion. However, the Macintosh HD icon does not appear on 1 of the MacBook Pro and the Mac Mini. I think I can remember this issue occurred before and there is something I can do to make Macintosh HD re-appear. Can anyone please remind me how to get Macintosh HD icon re-appear, thank you guys.

Just one other quick question, the double click function on one of the MBP's track pad doesn't work anymore. I must done something in the system preference, please help...
Cheers
Nathan
