Battery icon missing

HP 15 Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So a couple days ago, my battery icon that shows my battery level on my laptop went missing. I tried rebooting it to no luck and just stopped worrying about it for a while.  Then I thought I would like to be able to see my battery level before it gets to the critical level again. I don't know what to do. how can I fix this? Running Windows 10 Home (64-bit).

Hi @ConnorBu,

 

Thank you for showing your interest in the HP Forums,

I'd like to help :)

 

As I understand  you are having an issue with the battery icon is missing from the taskbar on your HP notebook. Don't worry as I have a few steps to help you get through this concern,

 

There are two ways to get the option back:

 

Right Click Taskbar and choose ‘Properties’. Then from the ‘Taskbar Properties’ Turn system icon on or off - Make sure Power icon is set to ON.

 

Next method would be from Control panel - Hardware and Sound - Power options - Under Balanced or recommended - Click on change plan settings - Click on Change Advanced Power settings - Under the big box scroll down to Low battery notification - Make sure both On battery and Plugged in is set to ON.

 

Let me know how it goes. I'll be more than happy to assist you.

Nothing. I went into the control panel and the settings and the power icon was checked to be on. I don't know why it just all of the sudden decided to not display itself because I never messed with anything of those settings.

Hi @ConnorBu,

 

Thanks for replying. As I understand it was all working fine and suddenly the battery icon is missing, let's try to perform a system restore to a previous date where it was all working fine. 

 

Once the system is restored successfully, please disable windows update.

Let me know how it goes. I'll be more than happy to assist you.

I did not take your advice and do a system restore. I googled my problem and got this answer.
