Volume Control and Clock in Notification Area

I don't know if here is a way to do this or not but it would be great if someone out there knows the correct answer to his...

Currently, I have a GPO that has the "Hide Notification Area" setting enabled. This of course works like a champ and what you will see is only the clock in the lower right hand part of the screen.

What I want to do is have that "Hide Notification Area" setting enabled but I also would like to see the Volume Control icon as well. If the "Hide Notification Area" is disabled, I do confirm that the Volume Control icon is in the notification area but once enabled, it is gone.

So is there any possible way to have Volume Control still in the notification area with the GPO setting "Hide Notification Area" enabled? These computers are pretty locked down and I would love it if I could just have the Volume Control icon shown and nothing else! Any ideas would be great...thanks.

set the volume icon to show and the rest to hide.
open the volume setting and there should be something there that asks you if you want to show it in the task bar. If you right click on task bar and select properties, then select customize in the hide inactive icons. Select them all to hide ...

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
