Windows 10: Unhiding the icons in the bottom right area of the taskbar

    Unhiding the icons in the bottom right area of the taskbar

    Hi, in Windows 8.1 there was an option to "show icon and notifications" for the icons that were hidden by the upward pointing arrow. I cannot seem to find this option in Windows 10, is there any way to set it so more of my icons can be seen right on the bottom right area of the taskbar?

    If you go into Settings and then the System option, you can get it via the below screenshot
    Notifications & Actions at the left, then click to select what to show

Instead of the icons being right next to each other on my bottom toolbar, there is about a one inch gap between them; anyway to get them to be right next to each other, the way they always have been? thanks!
