What do you mean by that icons disappear? Do they just disappear from the taskbar or are replaced by a generic blank page icon? Are you able to switch to that application after its icon gets 'disappeared'?

if Arc's solution didn't work, try this - Icon Cache - Rebuild

Arc/ Thanks but it's not pin proble.

My problem is Aplications' windows are opened and working, not minimized, but at taskbar some icons are missing - I could not see them. But when I open task manger, the missing icons are at the list of application.

EzioAuditore/ I tried it but same state. Anyway, I'll try again.

The windows are not being minimized ? First try SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker , and then run a full system scan using Malwarebytes.

BTW ... the icons you are talking about, are those notification area icons ? I mean, of this place ?

For how long this has all been happening? Have you tried system restore?

i very occasionally have a missing systems tray icon missing, volume mostly but sometimes mse, i restart explorer.exe and that solves it for me, no idea why it happens.
i added restart explorer.exe to desktop context menu and its very simple to correct now.

Explorer - Add "Restart Explorer" to Desktop Context Menu

Try the following and see if it helps;
1. Right click the taskbar in a blank area.
2. Unlock the taskbar (no check mark in the box)
3. Select properties and review the settings under the "Taskbar"
a. What is the setting for "Taskbar buttons"?
b. Try setting it as "Always combine, hide labels"
4. Select "Apply" and then "OK" your way out.

Test the results and see if the problem has been corrected. If so, then go back and lock the taskbar.
