    After AU: TaskManager's "CPU meter" in taskbar notification area gone


    Prior to update,
    when I had task manager open,
    the notification area would have a 'cpu usage meter' in it.

    It's gone now.

    How can I get it back, or do I have to install a 3rd party app?

    Hi, I'd guess if you go here in Settings

    You will find the setting is off. Change it to on. Hopefully your icon will reappear.

    (When it's off you could also try left clicking the ^ in the notification area and you should see it in the group of icons displayed).

    Setting is on. Was always on.

    So is "Always show everything".

    Doesn't work.

    Any further ideas?

    It's there now that I restarted Task Manager. Weird.

    I think Task Manager bugged out and needed a restart. I usually leave it running permanently.
