    If you have lost volume icon from notification area then follow the step-wise procedure:

    Step 1: Click on start then select Run option
    Step 2: Type command 'mmsys.cpl' without inverted coma and hit enter
    Step 3: Now, check the option of placing volume icon in the taskbar
    Step 4: Click on ok

    Another method is, open task manager and then navigate to Processes tab. Now select explorer.exe option and click on the End Process. After that go to the users tab under task manager now, click on logoff. At last login again, volume icon will be appeared if it was disappeared while you are installing any software or any programs.
