Icons disappeared from notification tray windows vista

My volume, network and power icons are all of a sudden not showing in the notification area in Windows Vista. I have right clicked on Start and looked at the notification tab and the "select which icons to always show" only allows me to choose clock and the others are greyed out. What has happened and how do I fix it?

    did you login to the pc using the exact user profile every time??

    Windows will create different user profile every time a different user is logon to the machine. even just a character or upper/lower case difference.

My icon for the battery power monitor has dissapeared from my taskbar can you help me get it back please


Do you have Windows 7? If so, you can right-click on the bottom right corner of your desktop (try right-clicking the time/date), where the icons for volume control, wireless, battery, etc... should be and select Properties. You should then see a screen where you can turn on/off the icons/notifications for battery power (sometimes my volume control disappears and i have to do this.
Otherwise you can go here, Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Notification Area Icons and you should find the same thing. Then just turn on your battery power icon/notifications.
Hope this helps.

Volume icon keeps disappearing from system tray


Volume Control - The volume icon does not appear in the notification area (system tray)
Go to Start/Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices.
On the Volume Tab under Device Volume, put a check in the box that reads: Place volume icon in the taskbar.(Classic View)

If that has been tried:
Place your XP CD in then go to Start/Run and type in:
EXPAND -R X:\I386\powrprof.dl_ C:\Windows\System32 (X- is your CD location)
Once done: Go to Start/Run and type in: regsvr32 stobject.dll

Volume Icon has disappeared.


First, right click on the taskbar and select Properties from the right click menu.

Alternatively, you can go to the Control Panel and type the word 'taskbar' in the search box from the upper-right side. Once the search results are loaded, click on the link that says 'Customize icons on the taskbar'.

The Taskbar and Start Menu Properties window will show up on your screen. Here, go to the tab called Notification Area. In the System icons section check the Volume box and click on OK.

The Volume Mixer icon will now show up in the notification area of your taskbar

I hope that this information was helpful and thank you for contacting the experts.
