  1. The Defender Icon on the Tasktray and not the Taskbar


    At a point where I've read so many answers I'm not sure if it's the Task Tray, System Tray or the Notification Tray, but it's where those teensy icons are that are all bunched together. How's that for geek speak? I want the Defender Icon there. You know I always go to search for questions answered before coming here. To save on the crush of questions if I could on the moderators and answer agents. It's a shame that so many answers on such as Google are old. They answer your query for links but with dates like 2018, even 2015. So many changes since those times cause personal time

    :)

    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.
