Dear Computer Lady,
The volume control icon has disappeared from my computer. There is a control on the speakers that I can use, but cant do it on the computer.
How do I get it back on the computer?
I am using Windows 7.
Thank you, Georgia
Here is how to put the speaker icon back in the system tray.
Right click on a blank spot on your taskbar.
In the context menu that appears, click on “Properties”.
In the dialog box that opens, make sure you are on the “Taskbar” tab and find the “Notification” section, and click on the “Customize…” button.
Click on the blue words that says, “Turn system icons on or off”.
Find the volume icon, click the button next to it, and click on “On”.
Click “OK” in all the dialog boxes to save your changes.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
