    Problem with system tray icons sticking?


    I have several items in my system tray (Windows 10, version 1909).

    But 3 of these "start with Window's" programs will not load on startup?

    I have enabled them in "settings/personalisation/taskbar/select which icons appear on the taskbar", but they do not load even though they are set to start with Windows?

    Anyone know what I am missing please?

    Interesting so thanks for that, but no help for me I'm afraid. I need to find out what is stopping 3 programs (WordWeb, Steam and Desktop Calendar Lite) from loading at Startup?

    To bad it wasn't that easy
    Ok it wasn't easy for me, it too 3 to 4 hours to find out what happened

    Only other thing I can think of is check if they use a task in task manager and maybe got turned off there.

    An example of one I turned off myself:

    Is the problem
    1 The programs are not running,
    or,
    2 The program icons are not appearing in the System tray [the "Notification area"]?

    The programs are not running? I have to start them manually once Windows has loaded.
    PS: The programs are set to run at startup from within the programs and set to show in the system tray?
