    Hi, I just started learning unity3D and while I was working on a project, I noticed my little camera icon disappeared. How do I get it back? Also wondering why I don't have the sky background like in the tutorial I am following? Mines just grey with a grid.

    Nvm, found it. It was just really tiny.

    Also figured out how to show the sky horizon. In case you're reading and also wondering how to show it, just go to windows > lighting > scene > skybox.

    Fun fact: You can adjust the size of the icons (called Gizmos) in the Scene view by selecting the Gizmos dropdown in the Scene panel and adjusting the slider.

    If the information above does not help you, It's possible you don't have a camera added to your scene. Selecting the camera entity (either main or other) in the hierarchy will show the camera view. A new scene will add a camera and a directional light automatically, so I'm kind of confused with your question.

    What same problem? Your camera icon is small? Please show a screenshot.

    Try change the Projection to "Orthographic".

    1. Double click on Main Camera (at your Hierarchy).
    2. Go to Inspector > Camera > Projection to "Orthographic".

    You may just need to click the "Gizmos" text (not the drop down). It seems to toggle all icons. I'm new too so please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Yes. For me that was it. So obvious yet so obscure. I always clicked on the dropdown menu named "Gismos" but never to the actual word. I didn't even know it was a toggle button! They should leave those on by default. It is very frustrating that they are off when you install unity.

    I've learned that if you Build & Publish, then go back to "Scene" and put where you want the camera angle to be. While fixing the angle of the "Camera" in "Scene", look back to "Game" or "Configuration World" and check the right angle for the camera. It works for me that way. I don't think the camera icon is important. As long as your picture or angle is there.

    Very useful information. Thought my icons had disappeared. Just had to increase the size!
