Go into control panel and look for nvidia desktop manager; under desktop management, click enable.

That should do it.

the desktop management is already enabled ,so it will have to be something else Diodorus.

You need to open the NVidia control panel and navigate to the "Tools" section.

You should find boxes for Enable Taskbar Icon and Enable Desktop Context Menu.

Make sure there is a tick in the appropriate box.

i navigated to the nvidia control panel and it won't open ,could you tell me how i can restore this function? i believe the icon in the system tray has been disabled to long to use system restore.

problem solved i think ,i have got my classic view task bar icon back by going to control panel,display ,click settings,advanced,click the graphic type card installed,tick classic nvdia control panel.i cannot however select the new nvdia control panel for some reason it doesn't want to open. this will do for now anyway thanks to all for your help

To be honest I prefer the Classic nVidia control panel...and switch the new dumbed down one off myself.

Glad your sorted.

Best way to reset everything is to reinstall the drivers from scratch.
