  1. Weird green taskbar icon briefly appears, then leaves in a hurry


    I've been seeing this for a while now, on occasion a green icon pops up out of nowhere, stays for about a second, and vanishes again.

    It looks like it's made up of two shapes, a taller one on its left side and a shorter but broader one on its right. I couldn't so far make a screenshot because it never stayed long enough. I first noticed it because it sets full-screen streaming to the in-browser size, but it goes back to full-screen when the icon leaves. It has not, so far, interfered with full-screen gaming.

    I suspect Nvidia or Razer, but I'd like to make sure this isn't something I should worry about and any search has, so far, been unsuccessful.

    The bot says to include this: I'm running Windows 10 Home, build 19042.867 on a Predator PO9-900, i7-7800X, 64 bit. Graphics card is Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

    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.
