  1. Where did my battery icon go?


    For the last two weeks, the little battery icon on my taskbar has been gone. I waited until I updated my computer to see if it was fixed in the new version. Unfortunately it was not. I looked up how to fix it and everything said to just turn it on in the taskbar settings, which makes sense. But when I actually go to turn it on, I can't. It's already turned on but it's grayed out so I can't interact with it. I don't really know what the problem is, what's happening, nor how to fix it. Does anyone know how to help or what I did?

    :)
