    Vertical White Bar in Notification Area After 14271


    Immediately after upgrading my Insider's copy of Windows 10 to build 14271 I noticed a vertical white bar in the notification area. See the screenshot:

    As you can see, it has a little arrow pointing to the right. If I rest my pointer on the bar, no tooltip appears. If I click on the bar, it moves to the left and now the little arrow inside points to the left.

    Any ideas what the heck this is?

    Hello Bulldog,

    This is a known bug in build 14271 for the taskbar notification area. You can turn off Always show all icons in the notification area to fix this for now until a new build is released again.

    Thanks, Brink. You are on-the-ball as usual. As long as I know it's an issue for the build, it's no problem. That's part of the adventure of being an Insider.
