Volume Icon missing Windows 10

<p>Upgraded to Windows 10 and now I can't get the volume icon to display in the system tray on the task bar. The turn on/off switch is greyed out in 'Turn System Icons On or Off' section of Settings, so I can't turn it on from there. How do I get the volume icon back in the system tray so I can easily adjust the volume level?

Found this fix myself on Windows Seven Forums 'System Icons Enable or Disable.'
( http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/19085-system-icons-enable-disable.html)
Option 2 worked for me, where I downloaded ' Enable_Clock_Notification_Icon.reg' installed it and now have my Volume Icon back.

I did everything you recommended and it work.  The 100% was to small, so I change it to 130% and it's still there.  Thanks for your help..

Unfortunately, this did not work for me.  My speakers work.  All volume controls work.  But my taskbar volume control is gone.  It's not found among the unshown icons that are displayed when I click on the ^ arrow to the left of the taskbar icons either.  Any additional suggestions are welcome.  Thanks!

Only worked for each session that you go through the drill. Is there not a Permanente fix?

Thunderpeel, you are a diamond.  I read so much complex bull on this subject, and your simple solution worked straight away.  Thanks so much.

Yes, per Huff's comment, it has nothing to do with 100% vs. 125%.  If you boot the system and the volume icon does not appear, then logout and login again, it will now appear.  

Very weird.  I had a similar problem with the power icon and fixed that - see http://www.technipages.com/windows-system-icons-missing-from-notification-area/comment-page-1#comment-764317

But that solution did not work for volume and this one is a "band-aid".  Still looking for a real solution. 

Thanks for all the ideas though.  This was a good try.

Oddly enough no one in MS applications/programming is chiming in to resolve this issue, why? 40 thousand opinions and not one single solution. A physical count on googling issue produces over 70% of the systems that have installed 10 have this issue. A simple Registry hack (which I will not share worked for a single session), but adjusting font size? Really? The problem is a technical issue in the design software, not a wysiwyg fix um up. MS fix your broken toy! Once again another "consumer beta test" to reduce your cost at our expense. Going back to Linux maybe the best option MS just keeps failing at every turn. Go look at the **** that is broken and the overhead it takes to run this junk for a pretty color filled screen, productivity zero to 5% maybe.
