    Re: Problem with disappearing Taskbar icons in Windows 7

    Dear,

    When the cache used by Windows to display icons on desktop or taskbar is damaged then icons are displayed incorrectly or not displayed at all.
    You have to repair the Windows icons cache.


    To repair the cache follow the following procedure:

    >> Open command prompt by typing cmd in run command box.
    >> Type the following command and press Enter

    ie4uinit.exe -ClearIconCache


    >> Now open task manager and kill the process tree-- explorer.exe

    >> Delete the file named as IconCache.db by searching in Windows Explorer in C drive.
    >> Restart your computer and your problem will solved.

    Thanks!

    Hi friend,

    The following is the procedure for solving the problem of disappearing Taskbar icons in Windows 7.

    At first you have to press the taskbar.

    Then tap on to the properties option.

    Now the screen shows you the window of the start menu properties as well as the taskbar.

    After that you can see the appearance box which is present in the taskbar.

    There you need to verify the checkbox which tells about the use of small icons.

    Press the apply button.

    Now the OK option is to be tapped in order to appear the taskbar icons in windows 7.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    To always find icons as you wish to see them on your TaskBar you do the following :

    Right Click on an empty space in Taskbar, in the pop up menu click "Properties", the Taskbar settings will come fore, click on the checkbox adjoining "Lock the Taskbar".

    In the same window select "Always Combine, Hide Labels" and OK to confirm.

    Exit, Reboot and there you go.

    Thanks.
