    Hi,

    The volume icon has disappeared from the taskbar. It has
    *always* been there and since yesterday, it is gone. In the
    control panel>sound, the box is checked for having the icon
    in the taskbar. In control panel>taskbar the volume isn't
    under Current Items, but it is listed under Past Items with
    its 'behavior' as 'Always show.' How do I get the volume
    icon back into the current list and back on the taskbar?

    I have a Compaq Presario with WindowsXP.

    Thanks,
    Jo

    First thing to try is turn it OFF in Control Panel/Sounds, click
    apply/close. Then go back and turn it on again. See if that works. Not
    always, but I've seen it work before.

    Thanks. I'll keep that in mind. I looked just now and it's
    back on its own. I must have a gremlin!
