    Dear

    Go to Control Panel - Sounds and Audio Devices - Double-click
    Sounds and Audio Devices Properties Panel is now displayed.
    From the Volume(tab) - place a checkmark/ tick in the box in front of "Place volume icon in taskbar"

    Hey it is very simple thing to do, this is not a problem.
    The thing is only that the notification is not enabled.


    To enable the notification follow the below steps:-

    1) In the right side of task bar there will be an arrow for the hidden items click on that.
    OR
    Go to "Control Panel" and click on "Notification Area Icons".

    2) Now select the "Customize" button.
