    Taskbar system icons randomly shifting to the hidden area


    I am using windows 10 on an HP laptop. I have chosen which icons I want on the taskbar volume, internet and battery in the "turn system icons on or off" section and have none that I want in the hidden notification area.

Could not find any answer in several google searches. Does a

    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.

    Icons in Taskbar Notification Area

    Hi idogat,

    I don't know for sure. Maybe random as well as some other factor(s) is the best answer I can give.

    I just now moved an icon from the taskbar area to the hidden icons menu, after which I checked those "Select which icons appear on the taskbar" settings, and the icon I moved was now turned "off".

    Sometimes, an app goes missing altogether from that "Select which icons appear on the taskbar" settings list, whereupon I must launch the missing app, so that it will be added to that list, after which I must manually turn it "on".

    I've experienced this pattern/behavior, such as it is, for quite some time now.
