    Hello!

    After a while of being on (5 days, broken up by hibernation) the taskbar starts to do weird things, here's some examples:
    First symptom (Telegram is showing behind the start menu):

    Then it starts to evolve

    I don't have two instances of Discord, Taiga, or Syncplay running. It's just showing two.
    Nothing is reported as even occuring in Event Viewer at that time. It's all rather confusing.

    I currently use OpenShell. Not sure if that could be causing it. A restart ususally fixes it for a while.

    :)

    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.

  3. Some Windows 10 store taskbar Icons are shown incorrectly


    The problem sort of started out of nowhere. Its not a big deal but its really annoying. So far its only Minecraft Windows 10 Edition, as you can see, the icon is very small and inside a black box, The desktop Icon shows correctly, as well as the Icon when I search it with cortana, but the start menu also has the incorrect icon.


    ***UPDATE***
    I just downloaded ProjectSpark for windows 10 and the taskbar Icon For this does the same thing
