  1. Unable to remove a show hidden icon in Windows 10


    Hello -

    I am working with an end user to resolve an issue with an icon that appears in the hidden tray. The icon appears when the the application is launched and for some reason, when the end user is running automated tests, the icon will begin to morph into multiple icons which impacts the tests. If you connect to the PC, you can hover over the multiple icons which will force them to disappear but this is far from being an ideal workaround.

    I've attempted to resolve this issue by going into Settings/Personalization/Taskbar/ but most of the options apply only to icons that appear on the taskbar and not within the hidden icons section. I can drag/drop the icon directly onto the taskbar from the hidden icons section but when I go back to the "Select which icons appear on the taskbar" section, it reappears back within the hidden icons section.

    To make things even more challenging, the software in question is homegrown and there's no information online.

    I've attached a screenshot for reference. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    :)

  2. Remove Linux Desktop Icons

    I am not sure whether this will work (Ubuntu does not have icons like that on the desktop by default), but I suggest opening the trash bin and sweeping the icons into the window showing the trash bin.

    Why is the Safely Remove Hardware icon missing in Windows 10?

    Hi.

    I am using a HP Envy with Windows 10. Safety remove icon missing and I can not safely remove my IPhone.

    I have read that other members of the forum have had the same problem of the Safety remove icon not showing. I followed all the steps suggested by Microsoft link and by pclicious.com. I also created a shortcut on the desk and still no chance for me safety
    remove the IPhone. I add a Galaxy Note II and still the icon was not showing. Then I added a WD external store drive and the icon suddenly appeared. It was showing not only the WD external store but the Galaxy too. However the iPhone was not in the list.

    Any suggestion will be highly appreciated.

    Regards.
