Preferred Solution: Solved: WMP icon not showing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I had to do a clean install on a new hard drive and since then have not been able to get my task bar balloons to show. For example, when using the Safely Remove Hardware icon, I don't get the Now Safe To Remove balloon. I only get a popping sound. When running a Mcafee virus scans, I can't view the scan progress when resting the cursor over the icon. I do get the identifying pop up and that is all. I've tried the log off and on tip but it didn't work. Can anyone help me?

On windows 8.1, my taskbar, one day, suddenly stopped displaying the audio icon on the taskbar. When I right click it, go to the properties, and click customize, it doesn't show the audio icon as an option. When I click, "turn system icons on or off," I can see the audio icon, but it is locked to off. I don't know where to look from here.

A:[SOLVED] Not Showing Audio Icon On Taskbar

Method 1:
There is no option available in control panel volume settings to show volume icon like earlier operating system. In Windows 8 and 8.1 you can enable volume icon by modifying ?Turn system icons on or off? option.
Right click on or near time clock in notification area and select Properties.



Make sure Volume icon is set ?On? as shown below, if it were off, make it on to show volume icon.

If the above step hasn?t help, ?Restore default icon behaviors? which may bring back the missing icon.



This is the normal procedure to get back the volume icon. In case the Volume icon option ( on/off) grayed out and you can?t change it, then follow the method 2.

Method 2: If volume icon is missing and you can?t enable it from ?Turn system icons on or off? area, then that could be an issue with explorer process. The following two methods can solve the issue.
a) Kill the explorer.exe from Processes or Details tab under task manager. Find out all explorer.exe and kill them, make sure no explorer.exe is running in the task manager. After that, on the file menu select new process or Run (or new tasks), type ?explorer? and press OK. It will start the new explorer process. That should bring back the volume icon, if it hasn?t, redo the method 1

This method has brought back missing volume icon on my Windows 8.1 computer.
b) Registry modification- Its recommended to take a backup before modifying registry.
Open registry editor in Windows and find out;
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify

After modifying registry keys, you need to kill and restart the explorer.exe process to take effect.

I hope one of the above method will fix your issue!

Hello!
I am running Windows 7 64bit on a Toshiba laptop.
As you see in the attached photo, the connections information icon shows "wireless connections are available" status even though I am connected! I am connected via hotspot (with a program called Connectify) to another laptop which has wired connection. I have no problems with the connection itself, but only with that status icon's wrong display.

This happend after I installed software for a bluetooth usb adapter. I have searched the web for the same problem and tried the suggested fixes: uninstalled the software, uninstalled the network adapters (wired and wireless), deleted iconchache.db file but none worked for me.
This problem is really driving me nuts so I would appreciate any suggestions on how to fix it!

Thanks!

I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.

Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.

Here's what I mean in graphic form:



It's bugging me to no end. Anyone else had this problem/resolved it?

A:Toolbar on taskbar should only be showing an arrow but is showing icon

Hello thewonkits, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I notice this happens when using small icons for a toolbar. If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, right click on the dotted separator line to the left of the two top far left toolbars (one at a time) click on View and Large Icons, then lock the taskbar to see if that may look ok to you. It will make the top row a bit bigger though.

Hopefully someone may know a better way to hide that bit of icon poking out when locked.

Hello.

I am running Windows XP SP2 and have a problem with the webpage icon shortcut. When I go to a given program using Start > All Programs > any program with a link to their web page, the icon displayed is the default document icon %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll (1) and not the web browser icon IE or FF. I have to change these manually by finding the icon target and changing it for each program's webpage.

Is there a way to correct this where I don't have to manually change each one but where the change would apply to all program's webpage shortcuts? I would like for the webpage icons to display the FF icon.

Many thanks for any help.

A:Administrator Icon Not Showing Properly?

Hello Tim, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This would be the UAC shield icon to let you know that you will be prompted by UAC if the item is opened.

You might see if rebuilding the icon cache may help.

If not, then see if setting UAC to "Never notify", apply, restart, then set UAC back to default settings, and restart may toggle the icon back.User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings
If still not, then run a sfc /scannow command.

Hi,

In Windows 7 you simply either hover the mouse over or click the 'Show desktop' button that sits immediately to the right of the date/time on the task bar:



If this isn't what you're looking for let me know in more detail what you're after. Hope this helps.

Hello, I am new to SevenForums

Anyway so up until the beginning of the month my networking tray icon was working fine, showing the bars that show for WiFi and stuff... but now it just shows the LAN connection icon with a red "X" on top of it...

Lets try flushing DNS cache and renewing your IP.

Flush the DNS cache and restore MS's Hosts file ...
Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0

Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Right click on the flush.bat file to run it as Administrator.

Your computer will reboot itself.

Both Windows Vista and Windows XP have a well-hidden ability to display thumbnail images with no labels This feature is probably Icon Labels Not Control In Panel... Showing most useful in a folder containing just pictures When Icon Labels Not Showing In Control Panel... you invoke it by accident it can definitely make life difficult To display the contents of a folder as thumbnails with no filenames simply hold down a Shift key while switching the folder from Details view to Thumbnails view in XP or to one of the several Icons views in Vista In my experience this action is a bit less responsive in Vista you may have to try several times Icon Labels Not Showing In Control Panel... But clearly it wouldn't be hard to invoke this feature accidentally So how do you get back the filenames First make sure the problem folder is currently set to display in one of the filename-free thumbnail views Now click on some other folder hold down a Icon Labels Not Showing In Control Panel... Shift key and click back on the folder whose filenames you want to recover Here again I found that in Vista I sometimes had to try several times Now that you know how to turn this feature on and off at will perhaps you'll find it's actually useful

Hello all.
First time here and probably not the last on account of Murphy's Law.
My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (x64).
I installed IE11 with no problems.
Once completed, I rebooted but could not locate the IE desktop icon.
Inspected the Internet Explorer folder. All files seem to be there including the .exe file. After clicking on this IE11 .exe file, nothing happened.
Checked the Control Panel to ensure IE11 was in fact installed and that it was "activated." All in order.
This is a mystery as I have used previous versions of IE without any problems.
Any attempts, to resolve this glitch, will be appreciated greatly. Cheers.

Yep, right click on the Taskbar, Properties, and you should see Notification area. Click on Customize... It brings up the Control Panel and you should see blue text saying Turn system icons on or off. Click that. You should see the battery icon and be able to change that to on.

I noticed that all my .html files turned into an unidentified file icon, it used to show my browser's icon (my internet browser is Opera) so it used to show opera's icon but now instead of showing the browser's icon, it is showing as an unidentified file icon.

Anyone has any idea as to how I can get those .html files back to showing my browser's icon?

Thanks in advance

How can I make Windows Defender icon in the notification bar appear when my system starts up?
I tried to toggle the switch to show the User Interface in the notification bar but that did not seem to help, but I toggled it back to OFF as shown from the image.

I just want the icon itself to show in the notification area as soon as my system starts up like shown in my other image.

Thanks

A:Windows Defender icon not showing when system starts up

I think you need this setting:

Open Settings, in the Search box type 'Select' and click the first found item. Scroll down to Defender.

(If you're using another AV, it won't appear).

I do have the same problem, and a search in the MS site provides the info bound to the following link,

http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;303597

which ain't much helpful. Anyway I am going to remove all the protocols installed, and run windows xp setup once again using the /unattend option so that I wont have to re-install all the software existing.

You can try the same too, incase if you are on Windows XP. Insert the WinXP CD, type the following into your Start->Run dialogue box D:\i386\winnt32.exe /unattend (Assuming your CD-ROM drive letter is D:\) all the best buddy, and incase if you come across any other work arounds, please post it in here.

Hello Deposit,

Double check in Default Programs to make sure that Word is set as the default program with all of it's associations, and see if that sorts it afterwards.

So far I have
Clicked the arrow to view Hidden icons (it is not visible)Click on Customize to Show icons and notifications (AVAST is not even on the list)Opened Action Center to see that AVAST is turned on and up to date

It was there and then it's gone. I have uninstalled it and then installed a new copy from a fresh download.
Maybe this is something new but I feel a lot more secure with the icons showing.

...instead of background colour.

This is a very simple request, somewhat annoying because I KNOW it's simple, but I can't for the life of me remember where to go to change it!!

Basically I just want to know how to see the desktop background wallpaper under an Icon name rather than the colour the desktop background (behind the picture)is set to.

Any help would be most appreciated!

Oh yeah my OS is Win XP Home SP2.

Thanks,

Peter.

PS. I feel really stupid right now.
 

A:Showing background wallpaper under desktop icon text...

There's two settings that can cause it.

1. Right click the desktop and choose 'arrange icons by' and make sure that 'lock web items on desktop' is unchecked.

2. Open the Control Panel and select System. On the Advanced tab click the settings button under Performance. The box for 'use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop' should be checked.

This is a weird one I rebuilt my windows PC after upgrading my mobo and adding an I - k After getting everything the way I wanted it I created an image using Macrium free Recently after installing the June set of M patches I started having problems with IE becoming unresponsive so I restored my system from that image Since doing the restore Photoshop and ONLY photoshop will lose it's icon when I pin it to the top section of the start menu If I then click quot remove from this list quot it drops it back to the recent programs list and the icon shows properly I cleared the recent programs list and reset the start menu to use default settings but neither of these work I edited the properties and reselected the icon even tried different icons This did not work either I am positive the icon displayed properly before I took the backup Any ideas thanks Tanya

A:Program icon not showing in top section of startmenu, only bottom

nvm, I have accidentally found the answer...

The icon is stored here...

C:\Users\Tanya\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned.

It had somehow become corrupted.

Manually re-selecting the icon and rebooting resolved the problem.

thanks

I searched to see if anyone addresses this issue and didn't find a thread for my exact problem, pardon me if I missed it...

I used to have a bluetooth icon showing in my system tray/notification area, which was a nice convenience. It disappeared within the past week or so, I think with the last big update. I made a tile for it on my start menu, so this is not the end of the world, but it bugs me that if I go into bluetooth settings, I have it checked to show the icon in the notification area, but it doesn't show... Does anybody know why this is and whether I might be able to actually have it show? thanks!

A:Wireless Icon not showing up after boot, and desktop laags until it shows up

Check your MSCONFIG (start/run/msconfig/enter) go to the startup tab and this has what your XP loads on bootup. In there look at each entry and decide if you REALLY need it or not. BTW Spyware and ad-ware will put junk in there as well. Uncheck anything you don't want loading on startup and you will notice the PC starting quicker.

Be careful playing in this though as if you disable too many devices you can have other issues.
