    Missing "Properties" in my taskbar....


    [Win10 Version 20H2 (OS Bild)19042.928; Lenovo Laptop; Outlook/Word 2016; Google Chrome...(is there more?)].

    Hello, I've been trying to find how to get the Properties icon that's missing from my taskbar but I didn't find any results applying to this problem. Reason I need this icon is to try to put a few taskbar icons into one space (as I had it before). So I need Properties and then, hopefully, I'll be able to create that space again. Would a kind soul help please? Thank you!!! :)

    I've not had a Properties on my Taskbars [several computers] but do activate the Desktop Toolbar, right-click a blank area of the Taskbar and then click Toolbars and Desktop. It puts Desktop with 2 little arrows on it, when clicking the arrows a list comes and lets me click any icon on the Desktop without having to mess with open apps.

    And I put a folder on the Desktop and drag less-used icons into it then on the Desktop Toolbar when hovering over it get a flyout list of those icons.

    Adela,

    I do not know what you are talking about. There is nothing commonly known as "the Properties icon" on the Taskbar.
    - Do you have an old screenshot that you could post here?
    - Or perhaps you could post a sketch of what you mean.
    - Do you have any links to online articles that talk about what you mean?

    This is bit of a shot in the dark but do you mean "Taskbar Toolbar"?

    to try to put a few taskbar icons into one space
    - might you be thinking of the Links toolbar?

    I think it's been replaced in Windows 10 by Taskbar Settings, upon right-clicking the Taskbar like this (bottom entry on pop-up menu):
