    RM CC4 - How to show Power and Volume icons in System Tray?

    Hey All,

    Should be a nice easy one for you all!

    Been asked to enable the Volume and Power icons in the system tray on a load of CC4 laptops.

    Anyone know how I can do this? I've been though the various reg policies in CC4 Management Console and can't seem to find anything.

    Hope someone can help!

    I'll have a look when I get back in, but I think the power icon is in the laptop computer settings.

    What does the setting say? Its been a while since I've looked at it...

    Is it a triple checkbox? [Enable/disable/not set]

    Windows 7.

    I did log on as admin. It let me manually set it to show the icons using the notification settings but it doesn't show to students.

    Have you made sure RM Volume program isn't installed to the computer and that the setting to hide Volume Control / use RM volume is not enabled?

    I think I imported a custom registry fragment to show these. I think there's some information on the RM knowledge library and communities.

    Chatting to RM seems like their Volume Control program doesn't work with Windows 7.

    Their advice was to manually create a shortcut to the SndVol.exe and stick it in a program set although to me that isn't good enough as want to have the volume control down in the system tray.

    Someone mentioned a registry fix for this? Would you be kind enough to post some more details?

    "Settings"=""

    Also, make sure "Replace the Windows Volume Control" is unticked under Taskbar in the user policy.

    Hi Guys,

    RM got back to me and Similar to Chris above there was a reg fix for the issue. I'll post the exact response from RM in case anyone else has a similar issue in the future...

    1) Please can you copy and paste the text below the line, into a blank notepad document, and save it as VolumeIcon.reg.
    3. Once the file has been created, create a custom user registry policy, by cloning one of your existing ones. 4. Edit the new policy, and add the VolumeIcon.reg file as a custom setting.
    5. Assign the new registry policy to a test user account, and then log them onto a Windows 7 laptop. You should now see the notification icons on the task bar, including the battery, default Windows volume control, and the network icon. If you are happy with the results this provides, please add the showbattery.reg file to your other user registry policies, or globally via the All Users registry policy.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\StuckRects2]
    "Settings"=hex:28,00,00,00,ff,ff,ff,ff,02,00,00,00 ,03,00,00,00,44,00,00,00,1e,\
    00,00,00,00,00,00,00,e2,03,00,00,00,05,00,00,00,04 ,00,00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer]
    "EnableAutoTray"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "HideSCAVolume"=dword:00000000

    @Sam_Brown Would you mind posting the actual reg file as the formatting makes it hard to determine. It'd be helpful! :-)
