Where’s my battery icon?

I’ve been using Vista for a few weeks now and all of a sudden my volume indicator seems to have disappeared from my System Tray. I used to use this quite often as my laptop doesn’t have volume buttons. Is there any way I can get it back?


The short answer is yes, you can get it back, and it’s actually quite easy. Here’s what you do:

  • Right click on your Task Bar and click Properties
  • Click on the “Notification Area” tab in the popup
  • Look for “Volume” under System icons and make sure this is ticked
  • Click OK

Told you it was easy, way easier than anything else you may have tried (especially trying to lose belly fat). You’ll notice there are a number of other System icons in that popup. I like keeping them all on, but you may have other ideas if you want to declutter your Notification Area.
