[Vista] Volume icon in systray

Had a problem with my Volume this morning - pogo.com (FF) and Freeslots.com(IE)...no sound at all.
Did all the checking everywhere...finally found the problem in my speakers...red 'x' next, clicked on that 'x'...tested it...perfect !
NOW, I have that Volume Manager icon in my systray. Right clicking doesn't remove it at all.
How do I remove it? I never have that in my systray.
Thanks for any help.
BTW...it's not listed in msconfig either.

If you know the process name you could open task manager and END TASK on it and see if it goes........

For example my volume manager is called SYSTRAY and if i end task on that,the volume icon goes..... (Usually i leave it on though)



Good luck!

Yes im sorry LadyL i forgot to tell you that you can goto your MULTIMEDIA folder and uncheck Show volume control on desktop and accomplish this quite easily..

Im glad you figured it out

Re: [Vista] Volume icon in systray

Have you tried to Right Click on the Taskbar on your Desktop.
Select Properties, then the Notification Area tab.
Under System Icons, remove the check next to Volume.

Yes right click on the speaker and select "Adjust audio Properties" .. I just did it and it brought me to the same place



It might be listed as something different on Vista but it will basically be the same



GOOD LUCK!!

Re:  

Sorry, but just tried everything when I rt clicked on the speaker and nothing under any of the names has any option to 'not show speaker',etc.
I'm really stumped on this problem ! When I had ME (2000-2007), I was able to remove it via msconfig (that was when I first got it in 2000) and never saw it again.
I'll try to reboot, which I hate to do...cuz when I do reboot, 99% of the time I have to re-set all my QL icons...dunno why it happens but that really frustrates me to no end !
I'll let you know what happens after the re-boot.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Would you believe... that re-boot solved the problem !
I could have saved myself all that wasted time...and yours...if I had only re-booted !
BTW, after the re-boot, I only had to re-set 1 QL icon and not all 12 of them.
Thanks for all the help...do appreciate it every time I have a problem.
