Windows 7: Strange behavior of taskbar/system tray

Strange behavior of taskbar/system tray

Hey guys,

Lately my bottom right display on the task bar is disappearing. This includes the clock, and all system tray icons.

All I have to do is open the task bar properties and click OK and then it comes back. This does not happen after a reboot, it just happens suddenly for no reason, and a couple times a week.

Any explanation for this?


Thanks

Hello Rich, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if resetting the notification area icons may be able to help in case there may be some corruption in there.

Hope this helps,

OK, I gave that a try. Will have to give it time and see if it acts up again or if this fixed it.

Thanks for the help
