Icons for Running Programs Have Disappeared on Taskbar

Post by RGlhbmUgSG » Wed, 24 Dec 2003 16:26:04


I recently ran into a weird problem. Alot of my programs when I click them are suppose to run minimized down in the taskbar. Programs such as Wetsock amnd a StartUp Mgr program. When I start the program they are running by looking at the Task Manager Processes, but no Icon is in the bottom of the screen to open up the program.

Could I have done something by accident when experimenting with the Xteq Program that either hides these icons or makes the taskbar too small to show? Any help on this matter would be much appreciated!

Happy Holidays to All

Diane,

See Tip 240 at Kelly's site:
(Programs Aren't Minimized in the Taskbar)

Or, use Taskbar Repair Tool from Kelly

Ramesh,

Thanks for your prompt reply. I tried the .vbs script to no avail and Kelly's program costs a reasonable $5, which I just don't have at this time.

Any other suggestions. This just started happening about 1 1/2 weeks ago and I am flustered because each program it is effecting has been directed to minimize to Taskbar on startup and I use them all the time.

Thamk you in advance for any additional suggestions you might have.


Diane

You may try creating a new user profile and transfer the user data to the new profile.

The QUICK FIX is: LOG OFF / LOG IN

I have the same problem on all of my clients PC's and my own.

and I forgot to mention... it is necessary to LOG OFF / LOG IN after each time you have started up from POWER OFF or Completed a RE-START.
