    Battery Monitor - Windows 7 Laptops

    Hi,

    Ive got 30 Toshiba laptops all running on Windows 7 CC4, however there is no battery icon in the taskbar to tell you how much time is left, is there any program that I can install so that it will show the % battery life remaining for all users?

    Have you tried customizing the 'Notifications' area (bottom right, right next to the clock) - from what I understand, Battery is a System Icon.

    Never used CC4 so I may be barking up the wrong tree!

    I had a look at that and it says somethings are restricted by GPO, but ive checked the relevant GPO and I dont see it set as disabled..

    Hello,

    I'm pretty sure this link will help you, it has some registry files on it which I used myself on CC4:

    System Icons - Enable or Disable - Windows 7 Forums
    Thanks,
    Darren
