Solved!

printer icon missing from lower right of screen

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 27-a010
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello and thank you. In the lower right corner of my screen there are a number of icons. One, a tilde/hat looking icon, when clicked reveals hidden icons. I used to see my printer icon there but after clicking too fast, too many times, it has disappeared. How can I restore it?

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

On my system, the printer icon only appears in the taskbar when a job is printing.  It does not show up there any other time.

 

Here's info on configuring what shows in the takbar:  http://www.digitalcitizen.life/how-set-which-icons-are-shown-windows-10s-notification-area


Good Luck

Thank you so much. That would explain why the icon disappeared after printing.
