    Get Windows 10 icon in the taskbar disappeared


    I have a weird problem, I downloaded the Windows 10 ISO using the Media Creation Tool and now for some reason, the Get Windows 10 icon in the taskbar disappeared so I'm not able to get any alerts when it's ready to install.

    Any help?

    Things I have tried:

    - I have set Windows Update on automatic, and have selected to receive recommended updates and updates for other Microsoft products, no result.
    - I have tried clicking the GWX.exe file in the system32 folder but nothing happens.
    - I checked with an elevated command prompt if all the needed updates are installed according to this link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3081048 to get the Windows 10 icon, and all of these updates are installed on my PC.
    - I have tried to remove the Windows BT folder in C:/ that is created when I downloaded the ISO with the Media Creation Tool, still nothing.

    Any help?

    Windows 10

    I had a similar problem, Notification wasn't working either. Was all resolved when I re-installed Windows without apps. I had to re-install all my apps again but at least it is all working properly. It is like a clean install rather than just an upgrade. I think it uses updated drivers or something.
