  1. Uninstalled program, but system tray icon is still there...


    Hi all,
    I am actually asking this for my Dad who is running Windows 10. He had downloaded (from a website) and installed a sound program (Voicemeeter) but it didn't do what he needed so he uninstalled it and restarted his computer. However, despite restarting, an icon for one of the program's apps is still in the system tray and when he clicks on the icon, the program/app still opens. The app isn't showing in his main tray or I would tell him to go to settings and have it hidden. But he doesn't want it in the tray at all. He doesn't want any evidence of the program anywhere and he is concerned that the program is still installed even though he uninstalled it through the Apps and Programs area.

    When that program is installed, it looks like there are several parts to the actual program, almost like several different apps that install with it. However, there is only one uninstall button, and supposedly that uninstalls the whole program.

    I'm thinking this may be a cache issue but I'm not tech savvy enough to figure out how to fix this, and Googling hasn't really helped me come to a conclusive answer as to what to do. I even installed the program myself, but the icon went away when I uninstalled.

    Thanks for any and all help you might have for me!

    :)

  2. How to recover hidden icon in System tray on Windows 10?

    Hi Callum,

    As you are facing issues with un-hiding the icon in System tray, we will help you with this issue.

    I suggest you to try the below steps to add the icons to Taskbar and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows key, click on Settings.
    • Click on System> Notifications & actions.
    • Click on Select which icons appear on taskbar (to select the icons that appear on Taskbar)
      and also click on Turn system icons on or off

    Hope it helps. If the issue still persists, let us know with brief description for further assistance. We will be happy to help you.
