Adobe Photoshop: HELP I deleted my Swatch Library menu icon and don't know how to get it back!

I accidentally deleted the swatch menu icon (used to be located in the below image), and for the life of me I can't find it!

 

I had several folders dedicated to different colors I use for specific projects. It took me a ton of time to put those colors together and stupid me deleted the entire icon by accident and now I can't find a way to restore them! 

 

Any ideas? Is this something that can even be restored? I really hope so, because I don't want to have to constantly keep referring to that giant swatch board. Any help at all is deeply appreciated.

Hi @Kat274199738ctx, the icon is not there because the panel is open. If you drag and drop your Swatches panel to the task bar, the icon will appear. You can also try to switch to a different workspace to see if that sets things the way you had it before. If you made Swatch custom folders and deleted them by accident, that's something else.
