Audio icon is not displayed below (Win 10)

Dear,

Normally, I could see the display of the audio icon below the desktop area. But sometimes, I cannot see such an icon even though I checked from "Show hidden icons". Thus, I cannot adjust the volume level straightaway. Although I can go to "Turn system icons on or off" under settings, the volume option is grey-scaled and cannot be adjusted.

What is the way of re-displaying the volume icon when it is hidden from our view?

Thank you.

Hi, saw this on my Daughters machine the other day, in this case clicking on the arrow /\ in the taskbar far right revealed it had been hidden, dragged it back and all was OK. You may not be so lucky. Go to search and type command prompt, right click on the returned command prompt and select "run as administrator" an elevated cmd prompt will open copy and paste the following into the prompt (highlighted in red does not need to be copied in red) :-

reg query "HCKU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion \TrayNotify" > 0 & notepad 0

Press enter, please post the notepad outcome here (this is perfectly safe as it only reads the entry)

Dear,

I had discovered that after updating the Windows 10, the audio icon re-appeared after restarting the laptop. The problem could be fixed during the updating process.
