Taskbar Disappearing With Use Of Browsers

Jul 29, 2015

I installed Windows 10 earlier today, and since installing it I've been having an issue, whenever I launch any browser, whether it be Chrome, Mozilla, IE, or Torch, it causes the taskbar to disappear, along with all of my desktop shortcuts, and I can no longer right click on my desktop to bring up the small menu for shortcuts/personalization.

I've already tried things like terminating the "explorer.exe" process, and restarting it, and I really don't know what else to do. It may also be other programs that cause the taskbar to disappear, such as games, but I haven't been able to test it, seeing as just launching a browser makes it disappear and I normally launch Torch as soon as I turn on my PC.

Disappearing Taskbar On Daily Basis

Feb 25, 2016

I am on Windows 10 Education ver 1511 build 14267
I use a laptop with an external monitor, generally as a desktop setup with external mouse and keyboard, keeping laptop lid closed.
The taskbar disappears on a daily basis. I rarely shutdown my computer, the way I get it back is to restart Windows Explorer from task manager.

Appearing / Disappearing Taskbar And Non0functioning Default Icons

Jan 7, 2016

Windows 10 Home factory installed on a new HP Envy. On boot up, there are times when the taskbar doesn't become populated and the default icons on the right and left don't function. Then there are times when the taskbar icons are populating, but the default icons don't function. And then there are times when all is working properly. I don't know why this happens, but I have noticed this: At night I shut the computer down. This morning when booting up, the computer went very quickly to the initial opening screen. Clicking on this screen then opens the password screen, and after entering the pw, windows opens fully but without a populated taskbar or functioning default icons. I then restarted the computer, but this time the boot-up took a longer time. The HP logo appeared with the "circling" icon, then there was the blue screen with the "circling" icon and finally the opening screen that needs to be clicked to then open the password screen. Entered the pw and the windows screen opened with a fully populated taskbar and functioning default icons.

Files And Drivers Keep Disappearing

Aug 7, 2015

I upgraded Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit to Windows 10 Pro 64bit on Wednesday July 29 and everything went ok until today I noticed that files on my 2nd hard drive keep disappearing. I always have my OS on one hard drive and keep all my data files on another hard drive.

Before I upgraded to Win10, I used Seagate DiscWizard to clone my Win8.1 to an identical hard drive and then upgraded the Win8.1 clone to Win10 and kept my original Win8.1 hard drive as a backup just in case something didn't work.Just so there isn't any confusion, I have 3 hard drives:

1. Original Win8.1 Seagate 300GB
2. Win10 Seagate 300GB
3. Data Seagate1TB

I noticed today that one of my soundcards isn't working correctly and the Win10 beta driver is a little buggy, so I decided to remove my Win10 drive and put my original drive with Win8.1 back in. While using Win8.1 I saved some files to my Data drive.

I then decided to go back to Win10, so I removed my original Win8.1 drive and put my Win10 drive in. When I went to my Data drive I noticed my files I saved while using Win8.1 were gone. I then swapped my Win10 and Win8.1 and the files were still gone. I saved some files again while using Win8.1 and they again disappeared when using Win10, so then I saved some files to my Data drive while using Win10 and they were still there when using Win8.1, so files I save to my Data drive stay when saved with Win10 but disappear when saved with Win8.1 and then boot to Win10.Then I tried another test and while in Win8.1 deleted the files on my data drive created with Win10 but they reappeared when I booted to Win10.

Nvidia Driver Keeps Disappearing

Aug 24, 2015

Specs: Windows 10, GTX 780, 4670k, Samsung 250gb SSD, 16gb RAM

The other day I was trying to downgrade my Nvidia driver to 353 because I was trying to play a video game in a stretched 4:3 resolution but apparently with the latest windows 10 drivers theres some kind of issue and it was impossible to get it to stretch.I went into device manager and right clicked uninstall on my GPU under display adapters, I think this may be where the problem occured. I was trying to uninstall the driver so I could fresh install the old one. After I did that uninstall I installed the 353.30 64 bit windows 10 driver that I downloaded from the nvidia website.

Everything worked fine but after a few hours the driver somehow stopped working, my second monitor turned off, I no longer have nvidia control panel, etc. I reinstalled the driver and again everything was fine for a while until it disappeared again.

Apps :: Tool Icon Keeps Disappearing

Dec 12, 2015

Yesterday, I downloaded Windows Update MiniTool. It's a portable program where the 7Zip file contains a 32-bit EXE, a 64-bit EXE and an INI file which is apparently some sort of language file. About an hour after I unpacked it, the 64-bit EXE's icon disappeared. I deleted the folder and the shortcut I created, and when I unpacked it again, I left the 32-bit file alone. Eventually, I downloaded that batch file for rebuilding the icon cache, and I thought that that fixed it, but this morning, I discovered that the fix was only temporary. Apparently, there's some other issue causing the icon cache corruption.I also have IrfanView, which is portable, and I've downloaded several legacy games where I created EXE launchers with Bat To Exe Converter, including icons I made with Greenfish Icon Editor. I've never had any trouble with any of those icons. I extracted the 32-bit file, just to see what happens.

Store Apps Are Disappearing Frequently

Feb 7, 2016

I have had to remove and add my user account five times in the past because of some random failure of Windows Store or other apps like Photos and Mail. By failure I mean those apps don't launch at all - not from the start menu, or desktop shortcut or app list. Now that time has come again because the mail app won't launch.

I have tried all possible solutions I could find online. I've tried wsreset, powershell commands, nothing has worked for me. On the system where it's happened now, my system has 4 online accounts and one local account which is the only admin account. There are not many third party apps installed except for some like ESET antivirus, WinRAR and PowerISO.

Moving / Resizing And Disappearing Desktop Icons?

Jun 13, 2015

I have an install with a low end Celeron-based Acer laptop that serves mostly as a desktop, hooked to a big monitor via VGA cable. Unfortunately the laptop must be opened to get to the power button.

with auto-arrange etc UNCHECKED [so, supposedly icons do what you make them do], the icons will rearrange themselves in a random fashion, resize differently, "ghost-out", etc. it really is maddening because user-installed Apps and just simple file paths are impossibly difficult for non-tech users on windows 10 [and its immediate predecessor].

what is the PERMANENT cure for this? I see a good number of threads on MS boards re: this problem on 8.0 and 8.1, none of which are encouraging. seems microsoft is pretty clueless about it - This does not happen on all systems of course, but in my experience, connectiing Intel HD-family graphics to external monitors is a roll of the dice [pretty solid with AMD or Nvidia]. Sometimes no sync at all occurs, sometimes resolution is difficult to set [impossible for non-tech users], primary display designation is lost/reassigned, etc...

Files Disappearing And Desktop Changing After Upgrade

Nov 29, 2015

This is in regards to files disappearing and my desktop changing. I downloaded and installed Windows 10 last night but did not do any modifications until this morning. When I started my computer today, I couldn't find my files. I found them in my user profile. So I moved them to the desktop in a new folder. Also, the desktop was not my previous desktop in regards to shortcuts. Which was fine because I added them back.

I then changed the desktop theme to the flower theme. I then went to restart and selected Update and Restart. When the computer rebooted, my desktop them was gone, and now my old shortcuts from 8.1 were on there. AND the file folder I created with all my files is gone.

I have looked in the windows old folder, the new one, did a file search, what happened? I do not have more than one desktop in the virtual desktops.

Should I recover back to 8.1 to get my files or how do I find them? They can't be deleted but somehow hidden on that other desktop.

Browser/Email :: Stop Mail Notifications Disappearing - Is It Possible?

Oct 25, 2015

I've just set up Win 10 Mail to check my email accounts. It works really well and I get the notification banner/sound just fine - which is OK for when I'm working on my PC, but what if I'm not?

The banner/notification disappears after a few seconds so I was wondering if there's a way to keep it active until acknowledged/clicked on?

Drivers/Hardware :: Realtek Card Reader Keeps Disappearing?

Dec 6, 2015

I've just updated my Dell Inspiron 7537 laptop to Windows 10.

All is working fine apart from the built in Realtek card reader. When the PC starts, the card reader appears as a drive and I can read/write to the card. However, the reader will randomly show no content in file explorer and the drive disappears altogether if I remove and reinsert the card. The card reader reappears if I restart the PC. Device Manger shows no problems with the card reader.

I've tried the Dell Windows 10 driver, the latest driver on Realtek's site and the driver installed by Windows update but all fail in the same way. The card reader was fine in Windows 8 so I think it's a software issue.

Internet Browsers All Hang

Aug 14, 2015

This will be in layman's terms. The new Microsoft Edge, Firefox, and Google Chrome, all get stuck, or hang. They take up to 3 minutes or even up to 5 minutes to unstick. Running on Toshiba Satellite. Just upgraded for free last night, and I was too tired, lazy, and dumb to do anything smart like a clean install, use a cool tool, etc.

No Sound In Anything Except Browsers And Skype?

Feb 7, 2016

I am absolutely clueless as to what is going on, everything was working fine last night. But now nothing is playing sound except from browsers and skype. I have tried black ops 2, gta v, shadow of mordor, steam trailers for games, but to absolutely no avail. It's really starting to annoy me, as all i want to do is enjoy my Sunday afternoon. And there will always be the odd bloke that asks, I am using Razer krakens, plugged into the side of my Blackwidow. I've completely uninstalled Razer Synapse, and restarted my PC countless times.

Ever since updating to Windows 10 every browser I use crashed. I have been trying Internet Explorer, Edge, and Chrome and have the same issue in all of them. Chrome is a little more stable then the other two. Example when opening up Internet Explorer my homepage is set to MSN and as soon as the content begins to load it stops responding and I must force quit.
