Hi,

I have two situations that I am unable to explain. My Windows Peek function somehow became disabled. I right-clicked the tiny window on the lower right corner of my screen and 'Peek at Desktop' is checked and shadowed. Also, on the advanced system settings, the box to adjust for best appearance is checked. What can I do to get this peek function back?

Also, I am missing the volume and power icons in the notification area. But something very strange has happened. When I look at the window to customize the notification icons, some of the icons do not correspond to their associated descriptions. This one really has me confused. Can anyone help?

Believe it or not but I really don't remember what was causing problem with Peek. And it's only two weeks since I originally posted this. Getting old really sucks. If sometime I remember what I did to get the peek function working again I'll be sure to post it here. The problem with the notification icons just disappeared one day and never came back.
