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 ...

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
