Windows 10: Bluetooth icon not showing in system tray/notification area? Solved

    Bluetooth icon not showing in system tray/notification area?


    I searched to see if anyone addresses this issue and didn't find a thread for my exact problem, pardon me if I missed it...

    I used to have a bluetooth icon showing in my system tray/notification area, which was a nice convenience. It disappeared within the past week or so, I think with the last big update. I made a tile for it on my start menu, so this is not the end of the world, but it bugs me that if I go into bluetooth settings, I have it checked to show the icon in the notification area, but it doesn't show... Does anybody know why this is and whether I might be able to actually have it show? thanks!

    Thanks - I had found that and it was already checked. But while I've been sitting here posting and googling, it reappeared. Windows mystifies me... :)
