    Battery icon on laptop does not show

    Thank you for the update. If the option is greyed out, let's try another workaround. Follow the steps below to use gpedit.msc to show battery icon:

    • On the search bar, type gpedit.msc and press Enter.
    • In the Local Group Policy Editor window, in the left navigation pane, expand
      User Configuration > Administrative Templates >
      Start Menu and Taskbar.
    • Find the Remove the battery meter option from the list on the right side of the window, then right-click on the option, and select
      Edit.
    • On the pop-up window, select Disabled and click OK to display the battery meter icon in the notification area on the taskbar.

    Note: If you're using Windows 10 Home edition, the above option will not work as Local Group Policy Editor is not available for this Windows version.

    If the above steps did not resolve the issue, try this instead:

    • Open Device Manager.
    • Under the Action tab, select Scan for hardware changes.
    • Expand the Batteries section.
    • Verify the AC adapter and ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery are displayed.
    • Right-click on these devices then select Disable.
    • Right-click on these devices again then select Enable.
    • Restart your laptop and check if the battery icon is now displayed on the taskbar.

    Should you need further assistance, feel free to post your query anytime.

    Battery icon is is not showing on taskbar

    Hello,

    This is Sudha Independent Advisor and user like you. Please follow below steps to solve your issue

    To check the status of your battery, select the battery icon in the taskbar. To add the battery icon to the taskbar:

    - Select Start > Settings > Personalization > Taskbar, and then scroll down to the notification area. Choose Select which icons appear on the taskbar, and then turn on the Power toggle. (Note: The Power toggle is not visible on a system such as a desktop PC
    that doesn't use battery power.) If you still don't see the battery icon, select Show hidden icons on the taskbar, and then select the battery icon.

    - On a device that uses battery power, if you select Start > Settings > Personalization > Taskbar and the Power toggle is greyed out or not visible, in the search box on the taskbar, type device manager, and then select Device Manager in the list of results.
    Under Batteries, right-click the battery for your device, select Disable, and select Yes. Wait a few seconds, and then right-click the battery and select Enable. Then restart your device.

    -If you select Start > Settings > Personalization > Taskbar and turn on the Power toggle, but the battery icon does not appear on the taskbar, in the search box on the taskbar, type task manager, and then select Task Manager in the list of results. On the Processes
    tab under Name, right-click Explorer, and then select Restart.
