  2. Action center icon missing from the taskbar

    The action center and notifications icon has disappeared from my task bar in Windows 10 it was there up until a week or so ago but now gone and doing a search for it doesn't find it on my computer.

    I have tried all of the following suggestions but they haven't restored it.

    Method 1: I suggest you to perform
    System File Checker (SFC) scan.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    To perform SFC Scan, refer to the below link:

    Method 2: I would also suggest you to run the System update readiness command. It detects incorrect manifests, cabinets or registry data, it may replace the incorrect data with corrected version available.
    Follow the steps.

    • Press Windows key + X.
    • Click command prompt (Run as administrator).
    • In the Administrator: Command Prompt window, type the following commands. Press
      Enter key after each command:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth


    I would suggest you to try the steps below to check if action center is disabled:

    1 Press windows key + I

    2. Click on "system"

    3. Click on "notifications and actions" on the left pane.

    4. Click on "turn system icons on or off"

    5. If action center is disabled, turn it on.

    Any way I can reinstall it?

    Dear Tony,

    thank you for the quick response.

    Unfortunately I didn't find any solution even after following above your mentioned steps.

    I did perform both Method 1 and Method 2, still I could not able see action center on taskbar.

    I just want to know where it is an windows bug or any kind of external attack like virus !

    Any help to restore action center would be great.
