Asking for a friend. She deleted an icon from her desktop by mistake and she can't get it back. When she tries it tells her it's gone for good. Is there any way to get it back. Her computer is a Mac

Was the icon for an application? A document? A website? Or?

RE: deleted from desktop

yes just go back to the bank website then while there go up to the address bar line and click on the little icon for that site and drag it down on to the desktop, that is how it is done on a pc not sure if a mac is the same.
from this article looks like it is pretty similar
