Lost Windows10 upgrade icon after disk cleanup

Hi,

I was running low on space with my ssd so I did a disk cleanup and I no longer have the windows 10 upgrade icon. When i go to windows updates it still shows that I have a reserved copy of Windows 10, but when I click on show more nothing happens. Any ideas on how to get the icon back?

I don't want to loose out on the free upgrade.

Thnx in advance for help!

Hello and welcome ithernet mate have a look at this https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/wind...ows-10-upgrade and you should by rights have an icon on the right side of the taskbar if you have reserved it - I stand to be corrected.
In my pic is what I have on this laptop of mine and it is also on my other machines - have a look in your notification area see other pic.

If you can see GWX entry in notifications list (see John's screenshot above), but no icon, then try to rebuild icon cache - Icon Cache - Rebuild
