  2. Icons in taskbar disappeared; pinning same icon in taskbar now shows "icon (2)"

    ok, maybe I'm not describing my problem correctly.

    As far as I know, I have only one taskbar active.

    I right click on an app & select 'pin to taskbar', it appears in the taskbar as 'Icon'.

    I right click on the same app & select 'pin to taskbar', it appears in the taskbar as 'Icon(2)'.

    Now I have two icons of the same app (Icon & Icon(2)).

    In my situation, the first 'Icon' disappeared somehow & only 'Icon(2)' is visible.

    I then unpin 'Icon(2)' from the taskbar.

    I then right click on the same app & select 'pin to taskbar', BUT instead on 'Icon' appearing in the taskbar, 'Icon(2)' appears! This leads me to believe that 'Icon' is still pinned to the taskbar BUT not VISIBLE.

    The question is how do I correct this?

  3. Pin to taskbar

    Just drag that icon from desktop to taskbar. It will pin it to taskbar by creating an icon on taskbar.

  5. Looks like you have Windows Essentials install and that looks like the icon for "Messenger".

    If you hover you mouse over it or click it what opens.

    Windows Essentials is no longer being supported and you may notice over time connection issues with different mail services. I saw the Windows Live mail icon in upper right.

    You have your taskbar unlocked, just drag the desktop toolbar only till you see the word desktop, then lock the taskbar by right clicking it and select lock taskbar.

    Orrrrrrr....
    You can do like me.
    With only the word Desktop showing, I move the shortcuts icons around, until I get the one I want showing(in my case Recycle Bin) is at the VERY top.
    Then while the taskbar is still unlocked I drag until the Bin is showing, and right click right next to it, without touching it or it's icon square(room it's actually given)and select View>>Large Icons.
    Then turn off Title & Text.
    Lock your toolbar.

    You may have to adjust it a couple of times after booting, or restarting for the setting to "stick"
    , but it's worth it. Now I have just the working Recycle Bin on the taskbar, I have created folders to group my 3rd party software and Windows shortcuts, and can basically browse my entire PC from the taskbar.

    Set the Toolbar and leave it. Don't unlock the Taskbar and drag it around.

    Or...
    create a blank shortcut in the folder with a name that keeps it at the top of the folder hierarchy.

    I have the task bar locked.
    When I click on the icon, it takes me to explorer, where there is a folder named Carolyn.
    The folder is also under users, which should be there.
    When I try to delete the icon or the folder, I get the message below and the folder or icon stays.

    Exit the Desktop Toolbar, then reset it without unlocking the Taskbar at all.

    EDIT:
    If you are choosing the pre-defined 'Desktop' Toolbar, that includes the User Desktop plus whatever is on the virtual desktop;
    if you only want the virtual desktop, choose it from the navigation pane as a 'New Toolbar'.

    Uncheck it, then go again and re-check it.
