How do you find the safely remove hardward if its not in the notification area?

Several icons are not showing in my notification area. I've gone to properties many times & clicked on "always show", but now they aren't even listed in the properties under 'current items'. They are only in the 'past items'. How do I get them back into the CURRENT ITEMS? Why do they keep disappearing?

  1. Start and Run this command
    RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll

    You will get the "Safely Remove Hardware" window, from where you can stop the device
