Windows 10: No program icons on taskbar appearing Solved

    No program icons on taskbar appearing


    So I just upgraded my grandma's laptop to Win 10 for her. Now, when I open any app, no taskbar icon is placed on the taskbar. I could have 5 apps open and the only thing on the taskbar are the start button, cortana search bar and the task view button.

    Any ideas why this is happening?

    Edit: Nevermind, I had start8 still installed from windows 8. Uninstalled and it fixed the problem.
