    Problem With Vanishing Taskbar

    I have Windows 10 Pro on a new desktop and have just created a user without any problems.

    I have encountered what, to me, is rather a strange problem. If I log out of user and into admin when I go back to user, without rebooting the system, the admin taskbar icons have vanished. It would prove rather cumbersome to have to replace the taskbar icons every time I went to admin for a task.

    Rebooting the OS restores the icons to the taskbar, but this not a solution.

    What is the solution?

    Thanks in advance.

    Problem with a combine taskbar icons.


    In Windows 10, you can personalize the settings of your taskbar. If there are multiple applications opened, same applications will be combined under one taskbar button. If you want to change this setting, we suggest that you follow the steps listed below:

    • Press the Start button.
    • Click on the Settings app.
    • Select Personalization.
    • At the left side of your window, click on Taskbar.
    • Under Combine taskbar buttons, choose Never.

    Kindly update us with the results and if you have further queries, feel free to post back.

    System Icons on taskbar


    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.

    how to effectively hide or disable the taskbar?


    Did you try the “Auto-hide the taskbar” option from Taskbar properties?

    If you have not tried it, I would suggest you to follow these steps and auto-hide the taskbar:

    • Right click on Taskbar.
    • Click on Properties
    • Check the box Auto-hide the taskbar.
    • Click on OK.

    Hope this information helps.
