    No program icons on taskbar appearing


    So I just upgraded my grandma's laptop to Win 10 for her. Now, when I open any app, no taskbar icon is placed on the taskbar. I could have 5 apps open and the only thing on the taskbar are the start button, cortana search bar and the task view button.

    Any ideas why this is happening?

    Edit: Nevermind, I had start8 still installed from windows 8. Uninstalled and it fixed the problem.

    :)

    taskbar icons

    Hello,

    How do i prevent TomTom Navigator from placing an icon in the taskbar when the program is minimised?

    The taskbar is usually not visible, because no othere program i use puts an icon there. TomTom however is the only program that does, so it makes the taskbar appear. And this taskbar uses space on my today screen and that makes the vertical scroll bar appear,
    messing up the layout of my today screen.

    TomTom Customer Help say TomTom has nothing to do with the taskbar icon (?).

    Device: HTC TyTNII

    OS: Windows Mobile 6.1 pro

    Application: TomTom Navigator 7

    Regards Jeen

    Task manager icon missing from Notification area

    I had the same problem as well. I brought up the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties, and on the Taskbar tab, at Notification area, I clicked Customize. I then clicked "Select which icons appear on the taskbar". Task Manager was listed and was turned on,
    but its icon was blank. I turned it off and turned it on again, closed and restarted Task Manager, and the little icon now appears in the notification area. Meanwhile, in "Select which icons appear on the taskbar", Task Manager now shows its proper icon
    as well.

    This worked exactly the same for another program whose icon wasn't showing up properly as well.
