    Task View icon does nothing


    When I click on the Task View button nothing happens.

    FWIW I login with a LOCAL account not a Microsoft Account, so I'm guessing this feecher only works if one logs in with an MS account. Is that right? If so how the halibut is it supposed to work for Domain users?

    No Start Menu and Problems with Task Icons

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.



    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue




    • Clicking on the start menu icon (left click) does nothing, Right click brings up a simple function list





      You can try these steps:
      • Open the Task manager. Here’s a tip: Press CTRL+Shift+ESC.
      • Click File > Run New Task
      • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”
      • Type Powershell
      • Type the following in the Powershell prompt:

        $manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest
      • Close the Powershell window
      • Reboot



    • Clicking on the File Explorer icon (task bar) does nothing. Right click does nothing.

    • Right clicking on any task bar icon, including open apps, does nothing
    For these issues you can try these steps:



    Method 1: I suggest you to run the SFC scan and check if it helps.

    Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files: (Windows Logo Key + X and then click on Command Prompt).

    • Several apps (Mozilla Thunderbird, Norton 360 specifically, have not been able to have been updated or re-installed. Norton support, using remote desktop app, gave up after 4+ hours of work today.








    For this issue I would suggest you to run the app in compatibility mode





    I would request to refer this link

    Hope it helps. Keep us posted if you face any issues related to Windows in future. We will be glad to help you.

    Thank you

    Reduction of application icon in Task View

    Hi Anton Borzenko,

    As of the time of this writing, there's no method in the settings that will allow for a change in sizing of the icons on the Task View. Therefore, I suggest that you send this via Feedback Hub. In the Feedback Hub, you can submit a new issue, so that our
    developers could have a look at this and maybe add a feature that will allow the resizing of icons on the Task View in the future updates.

    To submit a new feedback, please follow these steps:

    • On your PC, search for Feedback Hub in Cortana search, then launch the app.
    • In the left menu, navigate to Feedback > Add a new feedback.
    • Select the Problem, share any details you think are relevant, and choose an appropriate category and subcategory.
    • Important: If possible, reproduce the problem(s) after clicking Begin monitoring (or Start capture) near the end of the form. Click
      Stop monitoring when you're done.
    • Click Submit once you've completed the form and monitoring.
    • Click Continue using Feedback Hub.
    • Click My feedback at the top, then find the item that you submitted.
    • Open it, then click Share.
    • Click Copy link, then paste the link here in your response (it will look like
      URL Manager<unique link>).

    Feel free to let us know if you need further information.
