    No Program Icons in Taskbar, Others Are Messed Up

    My program icons have suddenly disappeared from the taskbar, including the volume and clock icons! I found my way over to the "turn icons on or off" page in settings, but the on/off toggle for all of my missing icons are greyed out (set to off). Any idea how I can fix this? I'm also missing file explorer from the taskbar. One more thing: in the place where the clock is SUPPOSED to be, there's an icon for the touch keyboard and the hidden icons arrow. When I click on those, I can see the calendar. In addition, the touch keyboard and the hidden icons arrow appear twice! Once to the left of where the clock is in their original places (they function correctly, as well) and once were the clock is (these do not function properly). I'm very confused. Thank you in advance!

    Have you try to repin the program icon to the taskbar ?

    And have you tried showing all icons in the notification area ?

    Also, run a system file check.
