Might be a registry value error. Check the settings or do a system restore.

    mmm yes. Its a common problem . Did u open any mails saying greetings or I love u stuff :D
    If u did so go to this link and follow the instructions.
    Most of the time its caused by a virus or registry value alteration . Check for these values and make them 0. Only if the above solution is not working.

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoActiveDesktop"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "ClassicShell"=dword:00000000

    TO get the registry editor, Start->Run->Type regedit and enter.
    navigate to or search for these keys.
    Double click the values and make them similar to this. Caution is yours.

    Extra notes. Navigating to safemode for the second step.

    1. Restart the computer.
    2. As soon as the BIOS loads, begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. Do so until the Windows Advanced Options menu appears.
    (If
    you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a
    "keyboard error" or similiar message. If this happens, restart the
    computer and try again.)
    3. Select Safe mode and then press Enter.
    Now begin your work there. Remember you can also select safemode
    with networking and interact with the internet.
    You can do a system restore from there.
    But u won't be able to run that tool in safemode. So log in to your
    normal Windows System or better if you have another admin account.

    If this solution helps you please kindly rate the answer. :) Wish U luck.
    Make sure your machine is free of viruses.

Get back the Quick Launch bar Windows 7's new taskbar functions as a program...


Get back the Quick Launch bar Windows 7's new taskbar functions as a program launcher as well as task switcher. As a result, the old Quick Launch bar, the area on the left side of the taskbar that contained shortcuts for frequently used programs, has been banished. However, if you really miss the little applet, you can add it back. Here's how to do it:

1. Right-click the taskbar and choose Toolbars --> New Toolbar.

2 . You'll be asked to select a folder for where the new toolbar should live. In the Folder text box at the bottom of the dialog box, enter this text:
%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
After you do that, click Select Folder. A link for the Quick Launch bar will be added to the taskbar. It will be on the right of the taskbar, just to the left of the Notification area.

It's not particularly useful docked all the way to the right with no application icons showing, so we're going to have to do a bit of work on it to make it useful. Right-click the taskbar and, in the pop-up menu, remove the check next to "Lock the taskbar." Now right-click Quick Launch and remove the checks next to Show Text and Show Title.

Once you've done that, drag the vertical triple dotted line next to the Quick Launch bar to the left until you expose its icons. To prevent further changes, right-click the taskbar and check Lock the taskbar.

You can now use the Quick Launch bar as you could in Windows XP and Vista, including adding icons to it and deleting them.

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.

In vista: taskbar does not show icons of opened files

Show or hide the taskbar gl_icon_tip.png Applies to all editions of Windows Vista.
The taskbar is usually located at the bottom of your screen. It looks like this:
getopencontent.aspx?assetid=984f8561-57a1-4b9c-9f22-f0d8dddec294&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml Taskbar
You can hide the taskbar to create more space. If you don't see the taskbar anywhere on the screen, it might be hidden.
Hide allShow allHide all gl_arrow_down_static.gif To show the taskbar
• If the taskbar is hidden, point to where you last saw it to show it again. If you can't remember where you last saw it, try pointing to the bottom of the screen first, and then to the side or top of the screen, if necessary. You might need to move the pointer almost off the screen to show the taskbar.
gl_arrow_down_static.gif To hide the taskbar
1. Open Taskbar and Start Menu Properties by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Taskbar and Start Menu.
2. Clear the Lock the taskbar check box.
3. Select the Auto-hide the taskbar check box.
The taskbar is hidden from view. You can see it again by pointing to the place where you last saw it.
