Windows 7: Show Power notification icon

Show Power notification icon

Is there a way to show the Power notification icon in the system tray on a desktop?

In "Turn system icons on or off", the drop-down menu beside Power is grayed out and set to off. After a google search, I found a registry tweak wherein I'm supposed to delete some registry keys that hide notification icons, but these registry keys don't exist.

Keep in mind that I'm on a desktop, which might be why it is disabled. I don't have a UPS so there is no battery to monitor, but I'd like to be able to switch power plans quickly. I might just have to stick with a desktop shortcut.

Thanks.

I saw that when I did a quick search.

I'd rather have the notification icon if possible, but if not, I'll go ahead and use shortcuts.
