RIGHT click on the taskbar, choose "Taskbar settings", then scroll to the "Notification area" section, then the "Select which icons appear on the tasbar" and make sure "Always show all icons in the taskbar" is set to ON. Once that's done, scroll down through all the icon settings and enable all those you want showing. (If any are OFF that you want "ON", then you'll have to temporarily turn OFF the "Always show all icons in the taskbar" to enable them.)
Hope this helps.
The problem is the area where the sound, wifi, notification, and other icons are located. I can hover over and right-click them and they respond, but clicking on them does nothing. I can't view notifications, change wifi connection, or adjust volume without going into settings. The rest of the task bar works fine.
I've restarted windows explorer (several times), restarted my computer, closed Norton Security (which I thought may be causing an invisible popup), and made sure all my drivers are up to date.
It's such an oddly specific problem, but it's a huge nuisance that's surprisingly hard to work around. I don't like bothering people on forums, but I couldn't find anyone else with the same problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
