HP Pavilion 15-p091sa Notebook PC (ENERGY STAR)

I have an issue where I can't see my pinned apps or ones that are already open on my taskbar. If I hover over my mouse I can see they are still there but I cannot see the actual app icon itself, it just looks like the taskbar is blank. I have tried resetting and looking at all the taskbar settings and have ran a trouble shoot which hasn't found any issues either. This has only happened when I turned my laptop on this morning, I have also tried restarting my laptop.

The Taskbar only can have a number of icons due to its physical size on a screen. Other icons are on the overflow area. You have to REDUCE the number to allow them to fit physically.

 

Hope this makes sense.

Hi 

I don't think the last reply sent. I can't see any of my pinned apps at all on the taskbar and I don't have any open at the moment either just my edge. But even with my edge being open I cannot see the icon appear on the taskbar below, so switching between apps is a lot harder because they seem to disappear. I've tried unpinning apps and then repinning but the taskbar is still blank. 

Thanks
