Icons not showing in taskbar on secondary display

New Contributor

Only the Windows, Search, Desktop, Widgets, and Chat Icons are appearing in the taskbar on my second display. The lines underneath icons of apps that are open are showing and I can click on the "invisible" icons to open the apps. It seems to be a visual issue rather than a functional issue.

Hi @PotatoFury,

For the above issue, you need to configure the taskbar settings by pressing Win + I

Go to the following location:
Personalization > Taskbar > Taskbar Behaviors 
Check the option, Show my taskbar on all displays as shown in screenshot attached.

@SalmanAhmed Thank you so much. For some reason, the issue fixed itself about 30 seconds after I posted this, but I will keep this in mind if this happens again.
