    Looking in Control Panel (Power Options) doesn't show anything referencing battery life icon. Can anyone be more specific?
    Thanks,

  4. Control Panel, Power Options, Advanced tab and Check always show icon in Taskbar. Click apply.

    Thanks for the reply; however, when in Control Panel and clicking Power Options, nowhere can I find any reference to Advanced tab no matter where on screen or on which side of mouse I click. Worse, when I manage to have gotten to someplace (?) that gives the battery icon option...it's grayed out, so no go!

    Can be more specific? Thank you!
  6. Can you be more specific?
    What are you working on?
  7. I'm working on an HP Pavilion PC using Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit.

    Thanks.
  8. A desktop?
    What battery are you talking about?
  9. Yes, it's a desktop, and the icon I'm referring to is the one indicating the battery life status, which icon shows how much battery life the computer has left.

    Does this help??

    Thanks
  10. What battery does your desktop have?
  11. Sorry...all I know is the one that generically comes with the PC.

    Can't figure out what difference does that makes...what am I (Duh!) missing?
  12. Laptops, that's true. And that's what I assumed you had.

    Unless you have a UPS backup battery for your desktop there really isn't a battery that needs battery life monitoring.
    For a desktop the only battery in your tower is the tiny RTC battery that probably will last the lifetime of the tower.
