Under Acc there should be another folder named Entertainment.
You should see volume control there.

Rshaffer61: Aha! There's the problem. When I click Accessories\Entertainment I get "Empty Folder".

How do I add it back?

You need to run the instructions Diabillic put in post #10 to get the volume control to appear.
Start the instructions and if there is something you don't understand ask and we will help on each step if needed.

More on my lost/missing Volume Control from my System tray;

1. Per one of your suggestions, I tried to find my original XP CD disks, but failed to find them.

2. So I reverted to an earlier suggestion: to RUN scf /scannow.
When I did that, my system spent 30 minutes or so checking (my Window files) and then finished (apparently). But I cant see what (if anything) really happened. Can you please clarify? Thanks, as ever.

The sfc will not produce a log but only ask for the cd if there are files needed to replace or repair.
If you don't have a XP cd then you need to borrow one from someone. It needs to be the same version as you have installed..Home, Media or Pro
The steps in post 10 are the correct instructions for installing the volume control.

OK. I'll continue to search for my CD; more than likely I'll find it. Thank you all a lot.
