+ 0 Votes Yes and No john3347 6 years ago Yes, I am running XP Pro Sp2 and no, the icons are not hidden. They just don't load at start-up most of the time. The functions are available by accessing them via a different route (ie: speaker volume control functions normally from "sounds" in "control panel", etc. The box is even checked in "sounds" to display icon in system tray, but icon does not display.) I can uncheck the "display icon" box in sounds then click "ok", then recheck it and click "ok" again and the volume icon will appear and remain until the next reboot. I don't know how to make the "safely remove hardware" icon appear. It just shows up when it feels like it. Thank you for that suggestion, got any more??? Anybody???
