    Hello Steve,

    There's not a System Icons icon in the Control Panel (icons view), but you should also be able to click on the Notification Area Icons icon in the Control Panel (icons view) to see that as well.

    Hope this helps,

    I'd like to know if it's possible to hide the power icon when no battery is detected.

    Hello Selvan,

    You could use this tutorial to turn off the "Power" icon, or set the "Power" icon to Hide icon and notifications to not have it displayed. However, there's not an option to have the "Power" icon noy display except for when there's a battery detected.

    Hope this helps some,

    BRINK, very helpful, BUT...

    Hello Brink,

    This is very helpful, but!

    When I get to the second screenshot down (ie: Right Click Taskbar -> Properties -> Customise -> Turn System Icons On or Off,), the very ones that are missing, and show as 'Off' (the ones I need to turn on, mainly "Network"), there is no reaction when I click on the drop down menu to turn them back on. The drop-down says 'off' in black/grey, and there's no way of bringing the menu down to select 'on', since nothing at all happens when I click the drop down arrow.

    HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hello Marco,

    Using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to enable any grayed out system icons may be able to help. Be sure to read the notes for each one to see if it may apply as well. :)

    but what if....

    The option is enabled on my users systems for the System Icons but I need to figure out how to script flipping that switch from Off to On, specifically for the Network Notification icon. Anyone ever have to do this? I've been searching for weeks and keep getting pointed to how to Enable the icons (as if they were grayed out) but they are not grayed out. Just switched Off. gotta switch them On.
