    What are you trying to add to taskbar
    If Windows Explorer then just click the slider to on
    Same with all the other ones that are off.

    Or are you having trouble getting them to click on and show icon on taskbar
    If something else please explain more so members on here can help you further

    Hi.

    I'm referring to the missing icons as seen on the screenshot.
    I'm not trying to do anything.

    Please, look at the left side of the screenshot. There are missing icons.

    sfc didn't find any issues.
    I think the repair install is too extreme for this kind of issue and it will remove all the tweaking that I have worked on and drivers that were not easy to install.

    Are there any other, less extreme, resolutions?
