How to return an icon to the Notification Area?

  Triprajul 04:11 11 Jul 2011


The Skype icon used to be next to the Volume Control in the Notification Area next to the time. However, recently, it simply disappeared. Does anyone know how I can return this particular icon to the Notification Area? Any advice given is greatly appreciated.

Right click the taskbar and make sure "Lock the taskbar" is not ticked, then select Properties. In the Properties sheet that opens, select the Taskbar tab and click the button to Customize the notification area. You can then set particular icons always to be shown. Exact instructions vary slightly depending on the version of Windows you're using.

Perhaps Skype no longer starts when you boot up, so start Slype, go to Tools, Options, General Options and put a tick in the box Start Skype when I start Windows. Or go to Advanced in the OPtions and tick Keep Skype in the Taskbar while I am signed in.
