  1. Pinned items on taskbar suddenly not visible


    I have been running Windows 10 for over 2 years, without any major issues. I have the Microsoft Office App's (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and Outlook) pinned to my taskbar. But starting today, although all app's seem to be there, the icons for Word and Powerpoint have disappeared. There is blank space where they should appear. (In the rest of this message, I will use the "Word" example, but PPT behaves the same.) If I hover over the blank space, the ToolTip says "Word". If I click on the blank space, Word starts up and runs just fine. If I right-click on the space, the options are to run Word, or to "Pin to Taskbar". The "Pin" option does nothing and there is no "Unpin" option.


    I have scanned for viruses (nothing detected), and run the Windows SFC utility (nothing detected), and have rebooted several times - no effect.


    How can i get my Word and PPT icons to reappear?

    :)

  2. Pinned items on taskbar suddenly not visible

    Hello Anoop,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Regret the inconvenience you have experienced.

    Did you made any changes to your PC?

    Did see any Windows Updates installed recently?

    Did you check the issue by restarting your PC?

    Usually the issue will be fixed by restarting your PC, post complete shutdown. If it doesn't try to remove the
    pinned app from the taskbar and Pin them back to the taskbar to see if they help.
    To remove a pinned app from the taskbar, open the app's Jump List (I.e. Right-click on it), and then tap or click Unpin this program from taskbar.

    To pin apps to the taskbar:


    • Press or click Windows Key, right-click the desired app from the Start Menu, and then tap or click
      Pin to taskbar (you can also do this in the Apps view).
    - Or –


    • If the app is already open on the desktop, press and hold or right-click the app's taskbar button, and then tap or click
      Pin this program to taskbar.

    If the problem still persist, please get back with the error screenshot along with the above information, to guide you accordingly.

    If Yashwanth Kotakuri's suggestions fail to work you could try using System Restore.

  4. Pinned items on taskbar suddenly not visible

    Is there a limit on pinned taskbar items?

    You can only have up to 12 pinned items on any program.

    What I suggest is making a folder with all the icons [RDP files] to the machines and pin it as a toolbar:

    1. Create a folder named Remote Desktop (can be any name)
    2. Right click on empty space on taskbar
    3. Select Toolbars
    4. Click New Toolbar
    5. Locate to the folder and select it

    (I suggest you keep them more organized, however.)
