    systray hidden icons disappear when moused over


    when rebooted this issue does not happen.
    After some time, if I open the hidden systray menu, most of them will disappear as I mouse over them.
    I do not know if it is triggered by opening a program, a background program, time, or whatever.

    any clues will be helpful.

    Is it possible to do a system restore and pick a date when you did NOT have this problem as your restore point ?

    System Restore Windows 10

    I realize you might not know when this problem started. That is why I asked if it is possible.

    Sounds like the programs are crashing and leaving the icon until moused over. What programs are we talking about?

    Suggestions only :
    1. Run a full virus can with the anti-virus program you have installed. Make sure you have a clean bill of health.
    2. Run a system file check to look for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.
    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.
    When finished, it will give you a report.
