  3. The Steam icon is there on the Screenshot you posted -- Bottom right side of screen in the icon tray next to your wireless connection icon and the PC issues flag icon !
  4. no but im wondering about the icon on the left near the start menu
  5. You unpinned it from the taskbar. Find the program in your steam folder (steam.exe), right-click on it and pin it to the task bar.

    If it's already running, running, right-click the program's button and then click Pin this program to taskbar.
