    Hide or Show Notification Area Icons on Taskbar in Windows 10


    The tray link, (Option One/Step 2), seems to be depreciated in Build 10130, go to Settings via the other Steps or directly:

  3. Windows 10: Icons missing in Taskbar notification area and in Settings -> Personalize -> Taskbar -> Notification Area - Select which icons appear on the taskbar

    To All,

    Suddenly, (but not unexpectedly for Windows 10's instability), some of my icons in the Taskbar notification area - AND - in "Settings -> Personalize -> Taskbar -> Notification Area - Select which icons appear on the taskbar" are now missing. In the settings,
    the missing Taskbar notification area icons are turned on but all I see is a blank blue box with no icon within it or there are two entries for the same icon.

    From my research, this problem has been around since 2015 so I tried a few of the fixes previously posted on this forum, but none have worked. These include:

    1. Rebuild the icon cache
    2. Run SFC (System File Checker) scan "sfc /scannow"
    3. Run DISM TOOL "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth"
    Note that restarts have been done after each of these. Are there other ways to fix this problem?

    Here is a screen shot snippet of "Settings -> Personalize -> Taskbar -> Notification Area - Select which icons appear on the taskbar" that shows the missing icons and duplicate entries for those icons that are missing on the Taskbar.
