Re: What Is The Proper Way To Display Icons On the System Tray In Windows 11 As Concerns NVDA


If you can’t get to the system tray icon in a convenient way, you may be able to get to the volume control by typing sndvol in the start menu search. 
Also, you can make a short cut to the volume control on the desktop and assign a shortcut key.

Hi Group,

Thanks to all who gave information about the icons on the system tray.
The Molsem advice works--but is a bit clumsy. I do in fact even see the
volume icon but I must go all the way one direction (left arrow) and
follow by all the way (right arrow) to get it to display.  Once it
shows, I can use the context key to access the various functions.

The volume icon and a few others do not show up when using the NVDA add
on (NVDA key + F11) keystroke.

For a nation to admit it has done grevous wrongs and will strive to correct them for the betterment of all is no vice;
For a nation to claim it has always been great, needs no improvement  and to cling to its past achievements is no virtue!
