Restore the Volume bar and Calculator Icon

I moved the calculator icon to the quick luanch (without copying it).
Some how I deleted it. I tried re-installing it through add/removed windows components (in the control panel) and I could not get it back. How can I get the calculator icon back?

The same with the volume icon, it has been removed (from the task bar). I tried re-installing it through add/removed windows components (in the control panel) and I could not get it back. How can I get the volume icon back?

For the volume, you need to go into the control panel and open the 'Sounds and Audio Devices" applet. Check the box marked "Place volume icon in the taskbar".

For the calculator, open 'My Computer' or Windows Explorer and go to the following location: C:\windows\system32. In this folder you will see the calculator program called "calc.exe". Right-click on this and select "Create Shortcut". Rename this shortcut to "Calculator" and drag it to your Start-menu (you need to hold down the mouse button whilst doing this), when the start menu opens drag it to Programs (still holding down the mouse button) and then to Accessories.

Thats it!
