Reinstall Volume Icon

Recommended Posts

hi recently i reinstalled the volume icon to my taskbar

im not sure why i lose it every now and then

here is a way to get it back

ans reestablish sound controls


Note that there is a space between "ex_" and "system_root" in this command.

y0ou need your instalation cd


For example, if your computer's CD-ROM drive is drive E, and the folder that contains the Windows system files is C:\Windows, type the following lines at the command prompt (pressing ENTER after each line):

copy and paste or type the line below



cd i386

expand sndvol32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\sndvol32.exe


5. Type exit to quit the command prompt.

6. Verify that you can start Volume Control and that the Volume icon is displayed in the notification area (if you selected this option).
