Windows 7: Minimized programs icons missing

Minimized programs icons missing

All of a sudden running programs that I have minimized no longer have an icon on the task bar so that I can open them up when needed. I have to go to the task manager to get to them. Not sure what I did but I can't seem to get them to display on the task bar again.

Advice much appreciated.

What programs? Are they in the system tray?

They are programs such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, Open Office etc. also folders such as Utilities etc. No they do not appear in the system tray.

I fixed it by doing a system restore from 2 days ago. I have no idea why this happened but the restore point restore repaired the problem.

That's funny. Glad it's better, though.
