    Strange taskbar issues


    Hello all,

    I have tried restarting the computer and then also restarting explorer.exe and neither have worked. First my taskbar will randomly show over a fullscreen game, fullscreen YouTube video or even over my work Citrix environment. It is completely random and no real way to recreate the issue. Second, none of the popups work on my buttons within the system icons area. If I click on Network, Sound or even the clock/calendar, nothing pops up. I can click the expand arrow which allows me to left and right click on all of my applications with ese but anything that is pinned to the system icon area does not function properly. Not sure where issue lies. Maybe a registry issue?

    Windows 10 64-bit build # 19041.329, Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2202.130.0

    :)

    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.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
