Notification triangle missing

I've tried everything to get it show up again but it won't what I'm referring to is it's the triangle next the clock/time. Anyone know how to get it to reappear again?

Not my screenshot just got it off google

Are you saying that you have no icons down there either?

My internet and volume control are there and whenever I open a program such as steam or MSI Afterburner there icons show up

Try a reboot, they usually come right back.

Oh. Try this:
  1. Right-click the Notification Area (or just right-click the clock)
  2. Choose "Customize notification icons"
  3. At the bottom of this window, disable "Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar"
  4. Now up above you can customize each icon to be how you want
  5. When you're finished, click OK
Edit: I did not link that in Step #3. I think a moderator did it.

That didn't work and reboot didn't work

Was it already disabled?

Did you spend time customizing your preferences in Step #4?

It doesn't let me untick the 'Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar'

Do you log in Windows with an Administrator account or a Standard account?

Then that's a problem that we need to address.
