I need to run the Head
Cleaning Utility on Epson Stylus Photo R200 printer.
Printer icon on taskbar of Windows XP doen't show.
How can I either get the printer icon on taskbar or
run the Head Cleaning utility another way?

Go to the Contol Panel, Printers and Faxes in XP. Choose your printer, in the
pop-up that opens for your printer click "printer" then "printing preferences.
You'll find the maintenance tab is the last tab on this.

Hope this helps anyone else having the same problem. It is at least how I was
able to access the print utility.

I had the same problem.
Try - Click Start
Click Devices & printers
Click printing Prefences
Click Maintenance.
You can then check print heads and clean them
