  2. Some taskbar icons are missing

    I have a similar problem. My Windows Office icons are missing on my windows 11 taskbar.

    Tried to follow the instructions above but could not delete the iconcache files as they were in use

    Any suggestions?

    Windows 11 taskbar icons not working

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I appreciate your interest in Windows 11. I understand that Taskbar icons are not working after upgrading to Windows 11. I’ll certainly assist you with the issue.



    However, please let us know:



    1. What happens when you click on an icon on the Taskbar?
    2. Do you receive any error message/code?
    3. Does this issue occur with all the icons?

    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to try re-registering the taskbar and see if that works. Kindly follow the steps mentioned below.



    1. Press Windows + X keys together and click on Windows PowerShell (Admin)
    2. Now type in the following command and hit Enter: Get-AppXPackage -User ([System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent().Name) *ShellExperienceHost* | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}
    3. Restart the PC once the command is complete.

    If the issue persists, you can try creating a new user account and then see if you are able to access the icons on the Taskbar.



    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare

    invisible taskbar icons ( windows 11 )

    try the website guidelines below one by one:

    https://appuals.com/taskbar-icons-missing-after...

    the solution below worked for some users:

    Step 1: Use CTRL-ALT-DEL and choose to open Task Manager.

    Step 2: Choose "More Details" at the bottom of Task Manager to expand Task Manager.

    Step 3: Go to "File" and choose "Run New Task".

    Step 4: Type "cmd" in the "Open" field.

    Step 5: Type explorer.exe and change date/time to the previous day.
