Windows 7: How do I get the volume icon back on the taskbar?

How do I get the volume icon back on the taskbar?

Hi there.

The icon which controls volume which used to be on the lower left corner of my taskbar has disappeared.

When I go into "Customise" then "Turn system icons on and off", I am unable to turn the "Volume" to "On".

Any ideas?

Sorry if this problem sounds really trivial, just an annoyance.

Many thanks

xx

sometimes i lose the volume icon at startup, despite everything set to show it, i find restarting explorer fixes it, i have a restart explorer shortcut in the desktop context menu, maybe this tutorial can be of help.

Explorer - Add "Restart Explorer" to Desktop Context Menu
