    Taskbar app icons not showing properly after being minimized in RDP


    If I remote desktop to any of my Windows10 PC's, open a few apps and then minimize any open application windows I can hover over them and see the thumbnails of them in the taskbar.


    If I leave them minimized and then minimize my RDP session, when I come back to that open RDP session all of the minimized taskbar app icons show a grey/white thumbnail with just a tiny logo in the center (the logo representing the app).


    This happens from any PC (5 total). No matter which PC I RDP from and to.
    I tried the thumbnail deletion fix on a few of them and it didn't resolve the issue.
    Any ideas what could be causing this?

    In addition. If after the above mentioned issue happens in RDP, if I log on directly to the PC that I was connected to the issue is still there. (the icons are grey/white). BUT - if I maximize and then minimize the apps while directly connected to the PC the issue is not there. Seems to be caused by RDP.

    :)

  2. Windows APPS ICON NOT SHOWING PROPERLY on taskbar


    It's been couple of days since I upgraded my system to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Everything is working fine except this nasty error. If I pin apps to taskbar or run apps , the app icons on the taskbar are shown as white square. And I am seeing the same thing on Apps & Feature settings list. The icons are there but as the backgrounds are shown as grey-white chequered pattern (for the transparency ), it looks like white squares. Rebuilt the icon cache but to no avail.

  3. How to show the taskbar when in a full screen RDP session?

    How to get the taskbar to show for some time when clicking on the connection bar in a RDP session?

    Right now to show the taskbar I have to minimize the RDP session, which is kind of annoying.

    The taskbar do show as I want it to, if I have two displays and click somewhere on the desktop on display 1 when having a full screen RDP running on display 2. Sadly this only work if the desktop is visible on display 1.

    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.
