Windows 10: Finding the Sound control from Settings Solved

    Finding the Sound control from Settings


    Is there a path from the settings icon in the startbar to the sound control which is in Control Panel > All Control Panel Items?

    I'm finding that I'm having to build my own Settings control, which contains the settings that I can't find in the standard Settings control!

    Right click the Volume icon in the system tray.

    Thanks for that. It also leads on to a related question:

    How can I influence which icons appear in the system tray, and which ones appear in the small popup panel which appears when I click the up-arrow to the left of the system tray?

    P.S. Aha, I see I can drag them around.
