    It's gone...I just booted it up and it's not there anymore. Anyone know where
    it went?
    Thanks...

    Hi Bill,

    To retrieve the icon, right click on a blank space on the Taskbar. In the
    menu that appears, select 'Properties'. Next, select the 'Notification Area'
    tab. Under the section headed 'System icons' there is a list of icons which
    you can set to either always show (ticked box) or always hide (cleared box).
    I recommend that you have all of these icons set to always show, i.e. have
    the boxes ticked. The options that I have in this section are Clock, Volume
    and Network. There is another option, Power, but that is only applicable to
    laptops.

    Hi Bill,

    This will show you how. Just select the Volume one.
