How do I add Merchant Service Center to the Icon Bar?

We Use Quickbooks Desktop, we have multiple users. The boss and I have been using it for years. I have the Merchant Service Center on my Icon Bar, so does anyone new we've set up through the years. The boss, the admin account, he doesn't have this icon on his bar. I've searched all over, I've tried everything I know, but I can't seem to get this on his icon bar? He doesn't use it often, but when he does he can NEVER remember where it's at. I posed this question before but there were no solutions. I can't find it now, but hopefully after a few years someone can find a way to make this happen for me.

 

Thanks for the help.

How do I add Merchant Service Center to the Icon Bar?

I'm not sure what this was supposed to do; the desktop is already linked to the merchant account. I can get to the merchant center through the Customers menu. I want the link buried in the menu put onto the icon bar at the top of the screen.

 

I've added a pic. The top bar is the bosses, the bottom bar is mine. I've highlighted the icon/link we want to appear on his bar. By default it's on all the new accounts we've created, but for some reason not his.
