Volume icon has gone!

  southpaw 18:39 04 Jun 05


I just checked the archives and still can't solve my problem.

The sound icon has disappeared from my taskbar (Windows XP)

I tried properties, customise always show etc but still nothing.

I also tried Ctrl Panel, Sounds and audio, always show in taskbar etc but still nothing!

Any ideas? Don't know why its disappeared in the first place?

Thanks in advance.

Maybe it's auto hiding.... click the < in the Taskbar by the clock.

right click on your taskbar, and click on properties, then taskbar, click on customise, and ensure that the volume setting, is set to "always show"

Thanks Joe R

I tried unticking the box applying then reticking and it worked.

Thanks to everyone, now sorted. Still no wiser to why it went though!
