Adding icons to notification bar (XP)

I have just installed a new Lexmark printer. Is it possible to add a printer icon to the notification bar? At the moment there is one there for an Epson printer which relates to another printer on my local network. I can't remember how that happened, it just did!

You may be able to right-click on the printer icon in Control Panel and find the option to place an icon on the System Tray (that is its correct name).
But I am only guessing, 'cos I have only ever owned Epson.

I have tried that, but there is no option to "Add icon etc" on right-clicking the printer in Control panel.

Perhaps if you re-install the printer, you may find the option during that action. Again, sorry, I am only guessing, though I do know the option does sometimes appear during installation of various programs.

Thanks for that, Technotiger. However, I think that is getting near to "If it's not broke don't fix it" territory, I'm afraid!
