  1. Restoring a functional W.L.M. icon to the Task Bar


    I recently added an icon to the QuickLaunch, that made it over-flow, but have since 'corrected' that so it no longer over-flows. By co-incidence or otherwise, Windows Live Mail icon no longer displays as an UNhidden icon with the tell-tale-mark indicating that new mail has arrived. Yesterday the icon-with-the-mark still showed IN the systray but NOT outside it like it used to, and today the icon-inside-the-systray no longer even showed the tell-tale-mark of new email having arrived. How can I restore the former behaviour of a W.L.M.-icon-with-the-mark appearing OUTSIDE the systray after new mail has arrived ?

    :)

  3. No Icons visible in task bar, Win 10

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    As you are facing issues with icons in the Task bar after November update, do let us know the following:

    • Is this issue confined only with icons in the Task bar?
    • What happens when you try to click on those icons?
    • What exactly do you mean by: "they are there but not visible"?

    Method 1: If you are referring to showing up of different icons in Task in System tray, I suggest you to try the below and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows key from the Keyboard, type
      Turn system icons On or Off
      and select it.
    • Try to turn on the icons that are visible.

    Method 2:

    Step 1: If not, I suggest you to place the computer in safe mode and check if the icons are visible to access.

    Refer: Start your PC in safe mode in Windows 10


    If the issue still persists,

    Step 2: This issue might have occurred due to corrupted or missing system files after the update. I suggest you to place the computer in normal mode and try to perform SFC scan.

    Steps: Place the computer in normal mode.

    • Press Windows + R keys to open
      Run command.
    • Type msconfig and press
      Enter
      .
    • In the System Configuration
      window, click on General tab.
    • Select Start-up selection as Normal startup, click on Apply and Ok.
    • Follow onscreen instructions.

    Perform SFC scan, System File Checkeris a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin)
      .
    • Type “sfc /scannow” without the quotes and hit
      Enter
      .
    • After the scan, restart the computer and check for the issue.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of this issue with required information, we will be happy to help you.

    Task Bar Icons Windows 10

    Hi John,

    Thank you for your response.

    We sincerely regret for the inconvenience caused.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps and check if it helps:

    If the icon is hidden from the task bar, you can enable it by using the following steps. The icon might be hidden. Here's how to show the battery icon:

    • Right-click an empty area on the taskbar, and then click
      Properties.
    • Under Notification area, click
      Customize.
    • In Notification Area Icons, click on Select
      which icons appear on Taskbar.
    • On in the drop-down list next to
      Power, and then click OK.
    If the issue still persists you can try Updating the latest Power management driver software for Windows 10 from the manufacturer website.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you.
