ctrl-P is the alternate (and a way you can get there to restore any hidden icons)

Often the Preferences icon is not visible because the calibre window is not wide enough to accommodate all the enabled icons in the main toolbar. You can select which icons are visible (and in what order) by following theduck's advice.

Tip: move Preferences to the top (first) of the main toolbar(s)

Thanks for the Cmd P clarification.

FYI for others dropping by this thread, you can always get to Preferences via the GUI and your mouse by following Griker's advice above if you don't see the icon. Preferences is the one item that Kovid has made it impossible to remove in such a way that it is not accessible via the mouse.
