I've been running OS 10.8.2 on my 17" macbook pro and offerred to assist a friend moving from a Dell to a brand new 13" macbook pro which is also running  10.8.2.  The hard drive icon is missing from the desk top and when ever I plug in a USB thumb drive or even a DVD it won't show up except in the finder window.  Can anyone tell me how get these icons back on the desktop?


Also, I find that when ever I send an email from this machine it appears on my mail program as "admin" but when opening the email the correct name is in "from" field in the email.  I would like to change out the "admin" for the correct name.
