    App ICON's missing in Taskbar


    Hello all,

    I've been running Windows 10 for a year or so now..
    I tend to run several (dozens) of applications at the same time, and to manage that, I would hover the mouse over the icons in the task bar to see which running application, I wanted to access. For example, it isn't uncommon to have several browser windows, and several email messages open at the same time - as I research answers, or cut copy and paste from other apps...

    Anyway, recently, within the last couple weeks - my running applications no longer show up in the task bar.

    Furthermore, I do have locked application Icons in the task bar, i.e. Chrome, File Manager, HP etc...
    When I hover the mouse over them the title pops up, but the thumbnail of the running pages is missing..

    Any clues? Is this a new "feature" from a recent automatic upgrade?

    Cheers!

    John

    :)
