    Need taskbar icons arranged as follows...


    Windows 10 Home v2004 build 19041.1867

    I would like to have my taskbar icons arranged in groups (like those on the taskbar's right, but not like those on the left half) as shown in this desktop picture:

    The way the icons are on the right, are just the way I want my other icons to show. Problem is that I was screwing around and somehow unassembled my other icons and I have forgotten how I arrived at the way the icons on the right were arrived at. But, let me show and tell you how I originally started out.

    I first made shortcuts of the programs. Then placed those shortcuts into group folders in my Documents section. Here are three shots that will show you what I just described:

    These are the group folders within Documents

    These are the program shortcuts within the folders (Taskbar-Browsers, for example)

    This is where I am stumped. I can't figure out (read remember) how I got from this point to placing the program icons, as grouped in their separate folders onto the taskbar so that they as grouped as shown on the right side of the taskbar. Thanks for your help.

    EDIT: For some strange reason, when I view this post, there is another image showing at the bottom. This was not intended to be and I can't delete it. Nonetheless, if you see this image, it is of a fishing partner (peacockbass in the Amazon) having a big treble hook being removed from his thumb area. Or, it could be interpreted as being representative of how I feel when having a computer problem that I can't solve...

    System Icons on taskbar

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    Are you referring to the clock system icon on the taskbar?

    If so, I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:


    • Click on the search bar on the taskbar.

    • Type system icons.

    • Under Turn System Icons ON or OFF, turn On the Clock and check with the issue.

    Hope it helps.
