Update 2.3.0.2139 destroys all icons in the taskbar


Recommended Posts

  • Staff

For our reference, same as the above.

@anto We have discussed this internally to some extent and nobody can or has reproduced this. We can only assume (and it is an assumption) that there is some other software causing this on your machine.

I had a similar instance a few months ago where my desktop icons would not appear on my taskbar and it was being caused by a Startup application called Razer Synapse. Once I had repaired and reinstalled this app, I never saw the issue again. Perhaps something similar is happening for you. Although, saying that, when I restarted the machine, they would occasionally appear again—but not always.

Do they disappear when the first app was updated or only when all three had updated?

And you have no Taskbar plugins/mods from the Microsoft Store?

All disabled. I do not use Microsoft Store. I have deleted all default apps (wether, news, etc.), which i could uninstall.

I can't test this personally as I no longer have a Windows machine, but you could try rebuilding your icon cache. Here's an article I found via Google but I can't test it.

Happens to me with all exe versions on both win11 and 10 with every beta and release version.
Just unpin them from the taskbar and pin them again after the installation from the windows menu works but is indeed a pita to do with every update.

I have to repin my icons from taskbar after each .x upgrade. I thought to mention, but I got too busy. This has been going on for the entirety of v2. I don't do anything special with my Windows GUI.

Same here, but I don't consider it a big deal. I've had to do that for other programs too. I try to remember to unpin them before updating, then pin them again once updated.

@Chris B This still happens btw, just upgraded to 2.3.1 on my normal installs. In case this information helps, during the update, I notice the program that is in the process of "upgrading" is no longer in the program list in Windows Search as I was trying to relink it to the taskbar... using MSI installers.

I wonder if this is relevant:

I did check this yesterday but my settings were already set to Always for both Combine taskbar buttons and hide labels & Combine taskbar buttons and hide labels on other taskbars

It doesn't appear to be the same issue? My icon turns to a sheet of paper (bad link). Next time I'll check what that icon actually does claim to link back to. When I used to try to activate it, I seemed to remember it would throw an error before which is what caused me to delete the link. I'll test it more extensively next time before removing to see if it just is a matter of the programs temporarily not being "found" on the machine and the link breaking? This is just my speculation.

FWIW, I do have always combine for taskbar icons set. It keeps my things tidy:

Not sure if this comment is of any help (and I didn't read all comments above, so please forgive me if it's already in there), but just in case;

I never encountered this issue (and had all versions 2 installed up to 2.3.1 now). I'm only using the EXE-installers (so never the MSIX installers) and I am on Windows 11 pro. Maybe the issue only appears on Windows 10 and/or the MSIX type installers? Just a thought. Maybe it helps

You are right, however, I just thought that if we can start gathering info on the Taskbar settings that everyone is using it might shed some light on these two issues that we're seeing.

I would consider it to be a lower priority compared to other bugs which may explain why it hasn't been fixed yet. I will update the creport with the current version for you.

No, it's not a priority for me. I've just restored all the icons for the 3rd or 4th time.

As for writing code for new features, there shouldn't be any problems at all. ChatGPT has already written 3 WordPress plugins for me, and this is despite the fact that I am not a programmer. And what happens if a developer communicates with it and explains everything? Well, he may not write the whole code, but he can easily write simple actions in blocks.

2.4.0 The same bug.

It's not funny anymore. If you don't know how to do this, then tell the developers not to move the system tray and not to put icons there. If you can, then please fix this problem.
Why is this a lower priority than spirals?
