    Missing Speaker Icon

    The speaker icon has disappeared (lower right). I have no control of the
    volume and it is set to zero.
    I need volume control - machine is useless to me without it.
    How do I get it back and prevent it from disappearing again?
    Many thanks
    LSK

    Right-click Taskbar -> Properties -> Notification Area Tab

    There should be check boxes for Clock, Volume, Network and Power.
