    KB5003214 update is causing issues with Windows 10 taskbar


    Windows 10 has a new bug that has been introduced thanks to the KB5003214 update for May 2021 Update (21H1), October 2020 Update (20H2) and May 2020 Update (2004). This optional update breaks the system tray of the taskbar and some users are also reporting other related issues.

    This is happening to users running Windows 10 May 2020 Update (version 2004) or newer with KB5003214 (optional patch) installed. One of the affected users told us that their taskbar is messed up with icons within the system tray going blank and overlapping, especially when News and Interests feature is enabled.

    Likewise, some users have reported that the notification center and network icon also stopped working after the patch. In some cases, users observed the system tray icons will move randomly and disappear or hide when the “News and Interests” taskbar feed feature is enabled.

    “After installing quality cumulative preview update KB5003214, I’ve got some issues with the taskbar, mainly right side icons will move randomly, disappear (hide) or will be scrambled. Tested on a Surface Book 3 business edition and Alienware M17 R5,” one affected user wrote in the Feedback Hub.

    “Uninstalling the update solved the problem. Also, the icons on a customized toolbar would disappear and then reappear if I hovered over them,” another user confirmed the reports.

    In other words, folks who are using the latest cumulative preview update with the “News and Interests” feature enabled on the normal desktop are having issues with the system tray which are meant to display background apps and pinned apps.

    “After installing KB5003214, my taskbar (in the bottom right with clock, notification centre, network icon etc) all broke. The icons appeared over the clock for a bit then disappeared,” a user explained the problem in the Feedback Hub.

    The search box is also not appearing on the taskbar for some users, while a few users have flagged display scaling issues, which could be related to the system tray bug.

    How to fix taskbar issues after KB5003214


    Uninstalling the cumulative update in question gets rid of the taskbar issues, but if you want to keep the update for whatever reason, there appears to be a second workaround involving News and Interests feature.

    The simple fix for those running the May 2020 Update or newer is to disable News and Interests feature from the settings. To disable this feature, right-click on the weather icon, select “Disable”.

    If you want to remove the update itself, head to Control Panel > Uninstall a program > View installed updates and click on the update that you want to remove.

  3. New install Windows 10 (issue solved)

    It's good that you're not experiencing any issues. Unfortunately many folks are, a quick Google search will show the same info im offering the OP.

    Heres a couple examples:

    Here

    Here

    It's basically what I mentioned above, small issues here and there ,but nothing to end your day.. for the most part.

    I know it's anecdotal, but for my experience 95% of the time it's perfectly fine. The issues I've run into wouldn't be enough for me to roll back , but they would be enough (had I not installed it yet) ,to avoid it for another couple weeks which is why I'm suggesting it to the OP

    Windows 10 update: start up and sleep issues caused

    Dear Vijay,

    Thank you for your response: apologies for slow feedback.

    Regarding step 1 - doing a restore point : I tried this twice and twice it failed. Now, the date of the update that caused the issue (13/14 September 2019) has disappeared from the history list. Is there a way of finding it, still?

    Regarding Step 2- the list of updates installed: the two suggestions above do not seem to appear in the list in the window "Installed Updates".

    There are two updates listed for 13 September - Security Update for Adobe Flash Player and Security Update for Microsoft Windows.

    Could you advise what I might try next?

    Thank you so much.
