For the Steam icon, click the small white arrow shown in the 2st image, then click Customise. Find the Steam icon, and then select the option shown in the 1st image.

I'm not sure about TaskManager. I suggest a reboot and then re-open it.

Regards,
Golden

Double Click inside the RED BOX as shown in my screen shot and it will fix it. -WS

Just double click on the title bar at the top. You're in full screen view mode.

OK, then possibly Steam hasn't yet started? Double click your Steam icon on your Desktop, and then log into Steam. Then see if the icon appears at the Task bar.

Ok Jesse. To find items that are already loaded, you need to go to the very far right of the taskbar - there you can see the Steam icon. Do you see that now?
