I have lost my volume control icon and cannot figure out
how to get it back. Initially, I lost volume altogether.

I reloaded XP Professional, ran all the updates, and I
have volume control through programs, but I still don't
have the little speaker in the task bar.

I have looked and looked in the available help, but either
I don't know what keywords to use when I search help or it
is not there.

Thank you.

the box Place Volume
Icon in Taskbar.

You are not alone. My colume control icon dissapears often. He has given
you good advice. You cannot just uncheck and re-check the selection
box. You must uncheck and then click on apply and then close the Sound
controls. Then you must go back in and re-check the selection box.
Rich, is there a way to prevent this from repeatedly occurring. I
consider myself somewhat computer literate but I have not found a way
to prevent this. Is there a registry edit for this problem.
