    Power & Volume Icons

    How do I show the power icon and volume icons on the taskbar notification area?

    I have tried properties - customize - turn system icons on or off

    But the power/battery and volume icon are greyed out.

    Right-click on the taskbar and select Properties. Click the Customize button in Notification area. Then click Select which icons appear on the taskbar. Move the slider to on. If it is grayed out, try restarting your computer.

    Click image for larger version.

    PS: When I tried to click on Select which icons appear on the taskbar, the first time the window opened and then closed immediately before I could see it. Next time opened OK. What kind of bug is that?
