    Windows 10 Taskbar - keep the arrows showing with lots of apps opened

    Taskbar shows up and down arrow

    Hi Jerry,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We understand you are getting up and down arrow in the Taskbar. There might be multiple applications pinned to the Taskbar that is the reason you are getting the up and down arrow.

    If the applications are "Pinned" to the Taskbar, you can right click on those icons and select "Unpin from Taskbar". This will remove the icons from the Taskbar when they are closed. Refer screenshot below:

    You can open these applications from Start Menu when you need it.

    However, if you need all the shortcuts pinned to taskbar, you can follow the steps mentioned below:

    Method 1: Unlock the Taskbar

    We can unlock the Taskbar and increase the size of the Taskbar. Follow the steps mentioned below and check if this helps:

    1. Right click on the Taskbar and uncheck the option
      Lock the taskbar.
    2. Now, place the mouse pointer at the edge of the
      Taskbar
      and drag the mouse up.

    Method 2: Small taskbar buttons

    Alternatively, you can use small icons on the Taskbar so that the icons are properly accommodated in the Taskbar. Refer the steps mentioned below:

    1. Right click on Taskbar and select
      Taskbar settings.
    2. Toggle the switch towards right for Use small taskbar buttons.

    Regards,

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 Taskbar - keep the arrows showing with lots of apps opened

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Windows 10 Taskbar - keep the arrows showing with lots of apps opened :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)
