After starting my computer, I noticed that the gap between network connection and language should be speaker icon:

enter image description here

When I move the mouse over the space the hint shows that this is a speaker icon and clickable. It just doesn't show the icon. How can I fix this?

  • This is possibly due to Windows not detecting any sound cards/devices on your PC. Try opening "Device Manager" from start menu and seeing if there are any sound devices detected – undo Jan 1 '19 at 16:18
  • @rahuldottech Yes, I have speakers connected. – Ver Nick says Reinstate Monica Jan 1 '19 at 16:20
  • @TwistyImpersonator I did. It shows the icon, but I don't why it didn't show it before. – Ver Nick says Reinstate Monica Jan 1 '19 at 16:24

Log out and back in Windows. If that doesn't fix it, restart the computer.

System Tray icons disappearing, multiplying, or exhibiting other weird behavior has been a problem as long as the System Tray (a.k.a. "Notification Area") has existed in Windows. The reasons are many, but logging out or restarting almost always solves the problem.
