On the right side of the taskbar(WinXP Home), there is a network(looks like a dial-up type) Icon there with a red X thru it. It serves no purpose that we need or that I know of and it's an eyesore to me. I know I can hide it, but I would like to get it off. (picky me i guess). I went to the "Network Connections" icon in the control panel and it appears there. I R clicked on that icon and in the properties menu I clicked uninstall, but the icon is still on the task bar. Can I get rid of it somehow? Thanx in advance if someone will help with this. Pauloz

Hi pauloz

If you right click on the Dial-Up connection and select
Properties > General tab

Do you have the option to uncheck: Show icon in notification area when connected ?

Does the connection show a Status of Enabled or Disconnected?

For some reason FireFox doesnt want me to use my own icon for it in the taskbar. ill change the icon, pin it to the taskbar, click the new icon and itll open up a new firefox default icon on the taskbar so there will be 2.

anyway around this?

A:FireFox Taskbar Icon, Makes Duplicate Taskbar Icon's

Let's fix the duplicate icon first, open Firefox from the pinned icon you have already after the second one opens up unpin the first one and pin the second one that should stop the duplicate icon.

Now the icon go to C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar then right-click on the Firefox shortcut click on properties make sure you're in the Shortcut tab and click on the Change Icon Button. After you open up Firefox again icon will revert back to the default icon because it opens up Firefox.exe you would have to change the icon in the .exe for a permanent change.
AppData is hidden is this tutorial Step #3 to unhide it File and Folder - Hide or Unhide

I'm using Windows XP.

When I "Open Network Connections" and right-clicked on the ethernet controller with the X on it, went to Properties, the box "Show Icons in Notification Area When Connected" is not checked.

I right-clicked the taskbar > Properties, the only choice it gives me is to "Hide When Inactive".

This icon wasn't here before and I don't want it hogging my taskbar.

Any ideas on how to get rid of it?

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.

1) no IE icon on desktop or in programs. i have internet access through verizon. i recently got windows update to install IE7 in the hope that would restore the icon/program but the only way i can access the internet is via the verizon browser. i clearly installed IE7 because now the "sidebar" of my verizon browser says that "sidebar i currently not compatible with IE7...". so why can't i get the IE7 icon in my program list or desktop?

i have attached the HijackThis file

2)my volume controls have disappeared from my windows taskbar and i'd like it back. do you know how?
thanks

I have created a shortcut icon which takes me directly to my Online Banking Login page.
I would like to place this icon (an image of a padlock taken from windows icon cache) on the taskbar.
My problem is, when I drag the icon to the taskbar a popup asks me if I want to 'Pin to Internet Explorer'...this is the only option given.
If I drop the icon onto the taskbar it changes my 'Padlock' icon to that of Internet Explorer...Clicking on this IE icon still takes me to my Online Banking Login page but I find it confusing having an IE icon.

Does anyone know how I can have my 'Padlock' icon showing on the taskbar.

Thanks

At Windows 7, I created 3 program shortcuts which execute same executable. Then I changed icons for second shortcut and third shortcut. When I launched the executable from the second and third shortcut, the taskbar icon of the executable will be that of the shortcut icon instead of the executable MainForm icon. In XP and Vista, it will use MainForm icon in the taskbar. Is this the intended behaviour of Windows 7?

As a personal preference, I run with the taskbar positioned on the left side of the screen with autohide set. In all previous versions of Windows, when I set the width of the taskbar (usually about 1 inch, so I can see more than just the icon for each task and the quick launch area is three or four icons wide) it stays that way, whether the taskbar is locked or unlocked. With Windows 7, after I set the width, any time the system restarts, whether from Hibernation, reboot, initial startup, what-ever - the taskbar is back to the narrowest setting. I've done web searches and and been through all the taskbar resizing entries on this forum without finding a solution. Any ideas?

A:Unwanted Resizing of Taskbar

I have the taskbar on the left side of my screen as well, set on auto-hide and locked, and I've encountered this same problem. Rarely does it occur for me from a system restart, but it always happens when I play Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. It's kind of annoying, and I'd like to know if there's a solution aside from not playing that game.

A:How to get rid of unwanted taskbar items?

I guess you mean the start menu not the task bar?

The task bar is at the bottom of the screen all the time and doesn't show any of these things (by default). It looks like this..



The start menu is what pops up when you press the key and looks like this...



If you mean the things circuled in red you can chose which by going to start menu and searching for Choose which folders appear on start and turn then on and off.



Let us know if that is what you mean If you really mean the taskbar then just right click and up-pin them.

The taskbar has a shadow which, as I have it at the top, obscures maximised window controls. On a 32bit installation it cured itself which I put down to an auto update, but nothing will shift it on my 64 bit one.

If I change the position and move it back, sometimes the shadow goes but
it always seems to come back.

Wish I had a better title, but I wasn't sure how to word this.

Basically what's happening is I have 2 instances of Firefox (different versions and different folder locations) and one of the instances is not opening where it's icon location is.

Example Screenshot:
As you can see. The far left instance does not want to open where it's icon location is.
The far right version always does it.
Even if I unpin the currently working instance (blue/orange icon) to only house 1 firefox instance (grey/black), the grey/black instance will still not open like the blue/orange instance current does (in it's own icon).
Hopefully this isn't confusing for anyone. I searched for a few terms to see if anyone had this problem and nothing came up, maybe I wasn't wording my searches correctly.

Hopefully someone can give some insights.
Thanks.

A:Taskbar does not keep mp3 icon

i dont think it will as it is acting as a drive, drives only show on the " computer" window.

however you could try clicking devices and printers in the start menu and see if it shows there.
if it does then right click it and create a shortcut.
you may be able to pin the shortcut to the taskbar.

Hi,
I have created a VBS file, when i open it in the taskbar i get the standard 'Icon Missing' Type icon in the taskbar, and was wondering how to change it to a custom icon, like the one bellow (from my school)
All help appreciated.

A:Add Taskbar icon to .vbs

Did you try creating an actual shortcut to the .vbs file then right-clicking it and choosing Properties then Change icon? The icon you want to use has to be on the HDD in a Folder, usually in the same Folder as the file, and you'd choose that icon. It's best to save the icon as a .ico file and adhere to the size limit for it, can't be very large. Most icons associated with programs are embedded in their .exe file, maybe in a .dll file.

Hello there,Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)Open the file and it will extract the contents (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.Please reboot your computer into Safe Mode. This is done by rebooting Windows and pressing F8 at boot/Windows startup, usually right after the beep. Then select Safe Mode from the list. Make sure you choose the option without Networking Support.Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again. Double-click smitfraudfix.cmd.Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart it into Normal Windows.A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process, in case we need it later on.The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txtWarning : running option #2 on a non infected computer will remove your Desktop background.If this does not solve your problem, download and run HijackThis:HijackThis Download SiteOnce it is downloaded, extract the zip file to C:\HJT and navigate to the C:\HJT folder. Now double-click on HijackThis.exe.Put a checkmark in the box at the bottom that states Don't show this frame again when I start HijackThis.Then click on the button labeled None of the above, just start the program.

It does appear to be a network icon, so my guess would be that it's from an installed network driver or software.

Hello Right click on a blank area of the desktop.Select "Arrange Icons By".Do you have a check mark next to "Auto Arrange" ?A check mark next to "Auto Arrange" will cause an icon that is dragged to spring back to where it was when trying to move it from one place to another on the desktop, but it should have no bearing on adding an icon to the Quick Launch bar.Now, regarding trying to drag it to the taskbar...do you mean that you are trying to add that icon to the Quick Launch bar ?When you drag it to the Quick Launch bar, you left click on the icon, continue to hold onto the left click, and drag it.As you hover over the Quick Launch bar, do you see an I bar cursor (shaped like the capital letter I) in that spot on the Quick Launch bar where you intend to drop it ? Are you letting go of the left click of the mouse when you see the I bar cursor ?I don't think a locked taskbar will cause that. I just tried dragging an icon to my Quick Launch bar, and was successful in dragging/dropping it onto the Quick Launch bar. I tried it with/without a check mark next to "Auto Arrange", and with the taskbar locked/unlocked. I am unable to recreate your issue.See if this article helps (has screen shots):How do I add an application to the Windows Quick Launch Bar?http://www.askdavetaylor.com/how_do_i_add_...launch_bar.html

"A network icon will appear in the taskbar in the lower right-hand corner of your screen and the picture of the two little computers will start to blink".This does not happen unless I connect to the internet first,then I have to put a check mark by "show icon in task bar"in network settings(while connected).I have to do this every time I am connected won't show icon unless I do it this way..The check mark won't stay when I disconnect from internet.
Has anyone else had this problem in (XP home)

Life is great and then you get a computer---oh boy
 

A:No icon in taskbar

The icons will not show up until you connect. (on a dialup) This is normal. When you disconnect from the internet, the icon disappears also. If you are on a LAN, you can turn these on also, when the LAN is disconnected, a RED X appears in the little TV icon. In other words, on a dialup connection, the icons are supposed to disappear when the connection is lost. Exception to this is on an external modem, then the icon should appear with a RED X through it when disconnected. Do you have an external modem? The LAN icon will always be present when a network card is installed. The LAN and Dialup icons look alike. I hope I understood your problem. If not, please post back with the exact type of connection you are using and as much info about where exactly you are going to reset you icon. Thanks

I am trying to put my outlook icon on the task bar. I don't remember how to do it. Can someone help me? Others that I created a long time ago have an .scf at the end of the file name.

Thank you for your help.

A:TaskBar Icon

Open Windows Explorer and go to:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10 double click on Office10 and
Scroll down to Outlook and right click and select create shortcut. With the shortcut on the desktop, drag and release it on the quick launch bar.
This is if you mean Outlook and not Outlook Express. If you have Outlook 2003, it will be in Office11

A:Taskbar no network icon

Use this tutorial. It was written for Win 7 and Win 8.
Rest assured that it is applicable to windows 10.
I used this tutorial to restore my Network and Volume icons to my system tray on my Win 10 Home.

Go to Option Two
5. To Enable the Network Icon > click the Download button

then follow the step #11 and continue to step #15.
Make sure you restart the computer to complete the process.

Hey all, first post here, how ya doin.

I'm a non-pro PC fixer-upper and as such I've been putting MS antispyware on a lot of people's PC's. I use the same settings for em all yet I've noticed that on some PC's the taskbar icon is a red target and on others it's a blue target- anyone know the reason for this difference? TIA

Hello, I've recently upgraded my Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 8.1 Pro and when the installation was done, this happened..
I get a grey background and a misplaced pin when I right-click on a icon in taskbar. I don't know why this happened, look at the grey background, that shouldn't be there, and the misplaced pin, that also shouldn't be there, but why are they? I've had Windows 8.1 before but this is the first time this happened to me.
I tried to update all updates in Windows Update but that didn't work, then I tried to reinstall Windows 8.1 Pro and update all of the Windows 8.1 Updates again but that didn?t work either.. Please help me?

I've recently had an icon of the recycle bin appear on my task bar. It's not in the quick launch or the notification area and it is not pinned there.
I can find all kinds of instructions on how to put it there but nothing on how to remove it.

A:Need help removing icon from taskbar

Hello lsippell, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if the Recycle Bin may be an added toolbar instead. If so, you can just remove it using step 4 below.

It sounds like you need to rebuild your icon cache.

Follow the tutorial at Icon Cache - Rebuild.

Hopefully this will do the trick.
