    Win 10 - Icon is not currently active

    I have the win 10 icon in the notification list of my win 8.1 computer, but it won't show up on the toolbar even though I have set it to "show icon and notification."
    It says; "the icon is not currently active," even though I have already updated an identical desktop?

    Thanks Nicky

    I have already tried this tool and unfortunately it has no effect whatsoever. Non of the 4 options available seem to have any effect on the icon.
