But I am not sure is it working or not so I will not take any responsibilities
FWIW, I've used that CMD script on both Win 7 & 8.1 & it worked for both... but you need all the prereq's including opt-in to CEIP as I posted above.

Hi Urthboundmisfit,

I've just checked my Action Center settings and found I wasn't "opted-in" to the MS Customer Experience Improvement Program. I've opted in now, so I'll let you know if this changes anything.

Hi Urthboundmisfit,

Your suggestion to enable the Experience Improvement Program seems to have done the trick - the Windows 10 icon appeared in my system tray shortly after startup today.

Thank you!

There is a community provided tool/script that will go through several means to fix the common issues. The link to this tool/script is buried on page 90 of this forum - but the easier way to find it is in the middle of this InfoWorld article - it's the dropbox link https://www.dropbox.com/s/0u0au9xgy6..._full.zip?dl=0 which is also referred to in the article below:
How to remove (or acquire) the Windows 10 free copy icon | InfoWorld
Instructions to run the tool:
1. Go to https://www.dropbox.com/s/0u0au9xgy6..._full.zip?dl=0 and download the file.
2. Copy the win10fix_full.bat file to anywhere else like desktop.
3. Right click the file and click run as administrator.
4. Follow the screen instruction untill to come to main menu screen.
5. On main menu screen do step 1 first and check if you go the updates insalled and and then press any key it will take you back to main menu.
6. Now do step 2 which only takes like 1 second and should have the icon in the task bar.
Please note this tool is not officially from Microsoft is not sanctioned by them but it has been reviewed by me, is not malicious and certainly makes it easier to get the process done.

Sadly, none of the solutions in this thread worked for me. I have all W7 updates and still there is no GW10 icon in sys tray.
Just don't know what to do!
