    Sound not in taskbar

    There used to be a sound option in my taskbar like everyone remembers, but I had recently installed X-Split and that is the last time I remember seeing it there.

    I have been on the forums and Google looking for answers but everything I find tells me to go to the settings and hit enable all. This was already checked off but even trying to select indivdual tasks it's not there.

    Any help restoring the option would be wonderful, volume is stuck at 37% and can't change it so I've had to use my neighbor's DJ equipment just to watch netflix at something I can hear.
    I went one setting down to Turn system icons on/off and sound is greyed out can't adjust that.

    I am using Windows 10.

    I have been using this tutorial to restore the Volume icon back to the system tray (taskbar ).
    Yes, it was written for Win 7 and 8, but it is also applicable to Win 10, as I said I had used it myself to restore both Volume and Network icons.

    Go to Option Two > step #9 > click the Download button > then follow step #11 to #15.
    Make sure you do reboot.

    P.S. There is a similar tutorial in Windows 10 Tutorials, but I find the one I just posted equally effective.
