  1. Windows 10 Power Icon Missing In System Tray Often After System Boot?


    Hello!

    I am having an issue with my Windows 10 Power Icon in my System Tray. FYI, I am running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit on a Lenovo Think Pad T510 laptop PC. Everything is to factory spec. except I have recently increased the memory to 8GB or 2x4GB memory modules from 4GB. I have researched this issue and found a few solutions from others who have had similar issues from various online websites. However, no one addresses this issue after it often recures following a system boot/start. After some testing, I have it down to this:

    1. There are random times the power icon will show up in the system tray and there are times it will not after system boot/start. However, I would say more often not showing that showing the power icon.
    2. The only solution I found that works is temporary meaning if I reboot or restart the PC, in many cases the power icon will not show in the system tray. I will have to redo the only solution to show the power icon.
    3. A TEMPORARY SOLUTION FIX: If I go to the "Device Manager" and disable "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" and then immediately enable it, the power icon will immediately show in the system tray. This has been 100% successful during a session while my PC is running. Again, if I reboot or restart, more often than not, the power icon will not show up in the system tray.
    4. BEFORE the temporary fix: I have found the "Power" icon under "Settings" -> "Personalization" -> "Taskbar" -> "Notification area" -> "Turn system icons on or off" -> "Power" (toggle switch) -> the only listed icon that is ON listed that is grayed-out.
    5. BEFORE the temporary fix: I have found the "Power" icon under "Settings" -> "Personalization" -> "Taskbar" -> "Notification area" -> "Select which icons appear in the taskbar" -> "Power" (toggle switch) -> a listed icon that is ON.
    6. AFTER the temporary fix: I have found the "Power" icon under "Settings" -> "Personalization" -> "Taskbar" -> "Notification area" -> "Turn system icons on or off" -> "Power" (toggle switch) -> a listed icon that is ON. NOTE: A CHANGE WHERE THE "POWER" ICON IS NO LONGER GRAYED-OUT AND IS ACTIVELY SHOWN.
    7. AFTER the temporary fix: I have found the "Power" icon under "Settings" -> "Personalization" -> "Taskbar" -> "Notification area" -> "Select which icons appear in the taskbar" -> "Power" (toggle switch) -> a listed icon that is ON. NOTE: NO CHANGE -- SAME AS BEFORE TEMPORARY FIX - ACTIVELY SHOWN.

    OBJECTIVE: What I want is NOT having to go to the "Device Manager" and disable "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" and then immediately enable it EVERY TIME I want to see the Power icon showing in the Windows 10 system tray often following a system boot/start. When I start or boot my PC, I want the Power icon showing in the system tray on its own loading every time.

    I have supplied some photos to this OP for your assistance with the issue.

    Please provide some reasons why and how the Power icon is not showing in the system tray after PC boot/start and solutions on how I can have the Power icon showing in the system tray on its own loading every time.

    Thank you very much!

    :)

  2. System Notification Tray Missing

    No dice. It's my entire system tray that's missing, not just the icons in it.

    System Notification Tray Missing

    Hello,

    One possible reason why the system tray icons are missing is that the system icons settings are currently off. For us to resolve this issue, we suggest that you change the settings of your computer. Here's a simple guide on how to turn on your system icons:

    • Right-click on an empty space in your desktop taskbar and select Properties.
    • In the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties window, find the selection labeled
      Notification Area and click on Customize.
    • Click on Turn system icons on or off.
    • If you'd like to always show all icons, turn the slider window to On.
    • Reboot the PC for the changes to take effect.

    Hope this information was helpful to you.
