  • Google something like "find volume icon for ______ " (computer brand). Or go to the website of your brand of computer and they may havea help section. I tried to Google it and got some ideas and you should be able to narrow it down by putting in your brand. GL!!

  • You're referring to the icon on the bottom of the screen, right? Try putting your cursor over the spot where it was, and right click. I think it *should* come up with a menu that should have the option to put the volume icon back, although I'm not 100% sure.

  • Also ...another idea......if there is a little arrow down there, pointing to the left, click on that and it may disply all your options. That's how it is on my computer.

  • You can click on the control panel, and look for volume.

  • just tired this^, it does not bring up volume control??
    any other ideas

    i could always try the turn off completely and turn back on
    yesterday i had my old avatar show up on cafemom- off then on- fixed that one

    maybe time to defrag?... forgot how to do this- instruction on how (or maybe i search this again and do it, been a few months since i did a defrag)
