I'll assume that the place at the bottom of your screen where the Pages icon used to be is the Dock. The most common reason for its disappearance is that one day when you were just intending to click on it, you accidentally dragged it off the dock. When that happens, the icon disappears in a puff if simulated smoke.
Pages for Mac, Numbers for Mac, and Keynote for Mac are available on the Mac App Store. MacOS Catalina or later required. Downloading apps requires an Apple ID. Some features may require internet access; additional fees and terms may apply.
- Changing the appearance of different file or folder icons will help you easily locate and identify your files and folders. Do you see wrong document icons instead of the icon associated with the app / file etc? Sometimes, the icons for your files and folders may appear as generic white documents (blank page image with folded down corner).
- Dock icons are a quick way to bring a hidden window or application to the front so that you can work with it again. Dock icons are odd ducks — they’re activated with a single-click. Most icons are selected (highlighted) when you single click and opened when you double-click. So Dock icons are kind of like links on a Web page — you need.
Nothing is lost. That icon was just a shortcut to the actual file. To get it back there, the easiest way is to get Pages started again, which puts the icon temporarily on the Dock, and then Control-Click or Click and Hold, and select Keep icon on Dock.
So, you're probably wondering how to get Pages started. You can hunt it down in the Finder's Applications folder, iWork sub-folder and double-click it. A quicker way is to press Command-SpaceBar. This opens the Spotlight search tool window in the upper right corner of your screen. Type Pages and it will appear, after a short delay, identified as the Top Hit. Hit the Return key and you're off and running.
I use this method for starting all the apps that I can remember the names of. It's much faster than dragging the mouse pointer to the Dock if your hands are already on the keys.

Changing Your Login Icon
Your login icon represents your face within the world of your Mac. It’s used as your buddy icon for online messaging in iChat, it appears next to your personal information in the Address Book, and you see it every time you log in. You can use one of the built-in pictures, or you can add any picture you like—your photo or anything else.
- Choose Apple menu, System Preferences.
- Click the Users & Groups button to see your choices.
Click the Password button; then click your picture and choose Edit Picture (the notepad icon) in the pop-up menu.
Drag or paste an image file into the Images window, drag the image and the scaling slider until the square shows the area you want for the icon, and then click Done to make it your login picture.
