    Devices icon has vanished from Taskbar


    My Taskbar no longer has the devices icon, the one which allows you to 'safely remove a device' such as a USB drive. I have no idea what happened to it. I hoped re-booting might bring it back but it has not. How do I recover it?*Eek

  3. Displaying Cortana search area with small taskbar icons

    Hello everybody,

    I have numerous application's shortcuts pinned to my taskbar, consequently, I've chosen to use small taskbar icons, however the search area has then vanished. Is there any way to bring it back with small taskbar icons?

    Best regards,

    Phil.

    Thanks, I found it in the 'show hidden icons' Window (really obvious!) but I will remember your tip for future use.
