  1. Why don't taskbar icon display settings stick?


    I think this has been happening as long as there have been taskbar icons (XP?). You set volume, network, battery, etc. to display, and they do. Then some random time later -- 3 days, a week, whatever, one or all of them stop displaying. So you go back to the settings and turn them on again. Repeat forever.

    Why does this happen? Is there some way to make these settings actually stick? A registry setting perhaps?

    Taskbar Icons Display Settings List

    When I right-click the taskbar and select Taskbar settings and then choose "Select which icons appear on the taskbar", the app displays a list of icons that I can turn on and off to appear in the task bar vs the system tray.

    There is an app I use CapsLock indicator, which every time I upgrade to a newer version, adds to this list. So now I have 4 copies.

    Where is this list stored and how can I remove items from the list?

    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.
