How to move icons from left side to bottom of screen


On all windows apart from Windows 8, you drag them from the desktop (left hand side) to the bottom (taskbar) with the mouse.

If the taskbar gets full up the icons might disappear.
The double bar at the end of the taskbar must be moved to the right for more of the taskbar to appear.

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.

Disappearing icons


sounds more like either you have a virus, or there's someone who has hacked into your laptop to delete them.

if you haven't run a virus scan, i'd say do it now. if it doesn't turn up anything, then try a firewall and check for spyware as well.
