[SOLVED] Not Showing Audio Icon On Taskbar

Q: [SOLVED] Not Showing Audio Icon On Taskbar

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.

Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] Not Showing Audio Icon On Taskbar

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.)

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!

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?

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.

Boot into the Setup (Bios) and see if the onboard audio is enabled or disabled. If diabled Enable it. Save the info and when you boot up, you should get new hardware wizard. If it needs a driver go to the Gigabyte web site and download the audio driver for your model motherboard.

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.

I have a Dell XPS 630i. I purchased and Installed through Dell a new Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatality card with the included DVD. XFI round sound console icon was in taskbar. This icon would launch control panel and volume. Also had rectangular icon for volume. I went to auto update and installed all recommended latest drivers and programs. Rebooted and now there is no X-Fi round icon on taskbar. The retangular volume icon is there but it won't lauch the control console. Does anyone else have this problem? Any ideas how to get the icon back? It was handy to launch console and switch mode. I am also getting a slight echo in the microphone. Any ideas how to correct? Thank you for any help.

How to hide the icons at the lower right hand of the taskbar?
Right now they seem to be able to hide & unhide themselves.
Sometimes lots of them visible, sometimes only a few.
How to control what I want to hide and what should be visible.

Is there a way to put an icon for the desktop in the taskbar? I just want to get to my desktop easily with one click.

The only way I know to do it now with one click is to left-click in the extreme lower right corner of my screen. The only problem with that is that the area I have to click in is so small that I'm always getting the clock. I can't do it quickly.

Seems such a poor design perhaps I'm doing something wrong?

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

I am running OS Windows XP Home Edition. This is a minor irritation, but one I would like to try to resolve. I have repeatedly tried to "hide" Local Area Connection icon (Network cable unplugged Realtek RTL3139 Family PCIF) by going to "Taskbar", "customize" and changing the behavior to "always hide". It seems to stay hidden for a while, and then suddenly reappears as "hide when inactive" and shows again on the task bar. I have disabled this connection, rather than uninstall it, just in case I need it at a later date. Does anyone know how I can keep it from popping up? Appreciate any suggestions.

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?

Hello,

I just got done doing a critical update for windows vista, and now I have this little speaker icon with a red X stating I do not have an audio out device installed. Well, I have a card, and just listened to some music before the update. What happened?

Thanks in advance!

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Please right click the existing shortcut and click on Unpin this program from the Taskbar,
If you also have a shortcut on your desktop right click and delete it as well,
Close all open ie windows,

Click Start and click on All Programs If ie is also listed as your recently opened programs right click it and Remove from list,

Click on All Programs,
See if ie has a shield on that listing if not Open and right click it on the taskbar and Pin to Taskbar,
Cheers.

I have no audio at all since the last update from windows 10 in early April.  I am showing a No audio output device installed on the audio icon on my computer.  When I go to device manager it shows that I have no sound components and an error code 39.  This is starting to really frustrate me.  I have tried everything and nothing works.  Be it said I am not an IT person and am limited in my knowledge of computers, but still I am pretty sure it can be a simple fix.

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.

Sometimes when I boot up MSE doesn't show up in my taskbar. I set it to always show up, but it still doesn't. When I run MSE it says it is monitoring my computer and I am protected. Just wondering if there is any cause to worry over this?

A:MSE not showing up in taskbar

Maybe it is behind the little arrow "show hidden icons". If yes, just drag it from there to the taskbar.

Hello barbu110 and welcome to Seven Forums.

It's possible that your icon cache became damaged or corrupt for some unknown reason. You could try rebuilding it and see what happens.

Hello,

First, thanks to all for all the previous help; appreciate it very much.

Re the bar on the bottom, which I guess is called the Taskbar:

Have several icons on it, which is fine.

But it won't accept any more new ones if I try to drag some onto it.

I right clicked on the bar and pulled up the Taskbar Tab under properties.
I have the Lock The Taskbar box un-checked, and have also selected
Never Combine next to the Taskbar Buttons: line.

Seems like it's still trying to pin the icons to others, and Not show them visually as completely separate icons in the bar.

What might I be doing wrong ?

BTW: also, any way of having the icon names Permanently displayed next to the icon on top or below the particular icon ?

Thanks,
Bob

Thanks,

After changing my keyboard settings, something happened with my taskbar so that it only shows two pinned icons, and I have to use these up and down arrow keys to scroll through the rest. This is incredibly annoying, as I can't figure out how to make it show all the icons again. My ThinkCentre button is hogging up the whole task bar, and any right clicks in the giant empty spaces right next to it will bring up options for the ThinkCentre.

Right click the left-very down corner (where it is the taskbar again under the start button) and uncheck 'Lock taskbar'.
Now u should be able to reduce the size of that toolbar.
If you can't right click again > toolbars then uncheck the specific toolbars.

When I restart my computer the only "extra icons" by my clock are my APC, Internet Icon and the volume icon. How can I get the Zone Alarm, AVG and other icons which startup when I restart my computer to show in the bottom right corner of my computer again?

Also, if I click on ZA it will add it to my taskbar area, but this doesn't work for AVG. I would like them to have icons anytime I restart my computer.

Thanks again for any help:)

I have windows vista, quad-core processer, 3 g ram....not sure if you need to know anything else.

Go to the program options and tell it to start up at start up or go to MSCONFIG and tell it to start up in the start up (get to it by start>RUN>type msconfig)this is for windows xp but may work for you : http://www.tech-pro.net/howto_013.htmlA other one : http://smokeys.wordpress.com/2008/07/05/wi...cons-quick-fix/

I've been using Windows Seven and Microsoft Security Essentials since November and have been fairly happy with it. But today is the second time now that I've started my computer and the Icon for MSE is not appearing on the system tray on the task bar. If I go and click it on the desk top and run the program it says the real time protection is enabled and it looks like everything else is fine, but I guess I'm just a little paranoid that it's not appearing on the system tray. The strange thing, I'll restart the computer, and then its there upon start up on the second time. I checked the thing in the task bar properties where it says "show notifications" and that such and it doesn't look like its been changed or anything. Just thought that it was kind of odd that it'll work if I restart it on the second time.

A:MSE not showing up on taskbar first time

The real test to see whether MSE is protecting you, despite the missing icon, is if the services are running.

MsMpEng.exe is the security engine, used by Windows Defender and MSE.

msseces.exe is MSE itself.

Hello Yihwan,

It looks like you need to unlock your taskbar, drag the dotted lines separator just to the left of the blue circle icon (far right one) over to the left to decompress the other icons until the arrows to the right of the Chrome icon go away. After you get the icons dragged into the position you want, you can lock the taskbar again.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

There are some programs that when it is in full/maximized window, it hides everything from the desktop.
The program that i am using is Zbrush 4R7, and the windows 10 taskbar shows when the program is maximized, which it is very annoying, and because of that, many options of Zbrush that is at the bottom becomes unaccesible unless I go in windowed mode.
So, is there a way to fix this issue with windows 10, because I was a windows 7 user and everything works fine, except in windows 10. Thanks.

So yes.. let me explain my problem here.

Yesterday,I created a guest account and logged off to another,after that,my screen

went black and does not respond to whatever I pressed. Even after restarting my

computer,the problem persists.

Now,I had disabled the guest account through safe mode.

But in normal mode,icons,taskbars were gone,but mouse cursors and background

remains. I was wondering if this might have something related to graphic or something.

Also,I am not able to go to task manager,it goes black screen after I did crt + alt + del.

I am using windows vista x64bit
