    The sound icon missing from bottom right of screen

    As you can see from the title the sound icon is missing from the bottom right of the screen, this is a big problem because I need to go to my sound mixer quite often to turn different applications down. I have looked at this online but the fixes that worked for them didn't work for me I think I know what the problem is I just don't know how to fix it.

    the image here is the system icons but the volume is darkened out so i cant turn it on. does anyone know of a way?

    Thank You in advance.

    Search for, and open: Device Manager

    Press the arrow on the left of: Sound, video and game controllers.
    (Do you know which one your sound device is?)
    Right click and update it
