Taskbar Not Showing In Windows 11 (FIX)

Copper Contributor

Easiest fix I have found is this. Press Windows + R > Run control > Go to uninstall a program > go to installed updates > and uninstall Security Update for Microsoft Windows (KB5006674). It will fix the issue. I discovered while running a system check that when I was trying to access settings I was getting access denied. Which Made me realize it wasn't the whole cumulative update. Its just the Security update that was breaking the windows 11 system it wasn't giving me correct privileges to access anything and only giving me guest rights. Hope it fixes your pc :)

This is probably a stupid question but what do you type in the Run box?

@Conran855 You type control in the Run box.

@ReverieJacket control panel I think

Run this in Powershell as Administrator.
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


Security Update for Microsoft Windows (KB5006674) does not show in my installed updates but a different one does...can i remove that one?

This is getting highly annoying, After reading a bit about it but not having any issues, I too started having the problem of the task bar apprearing but mostly empty, the Start Button missing, Pinned apps, and some system tray apps were missing and if you try to launch any built in or store apps you get some rrror about them not being available. For 2 months now, I have to run "Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}" each time I boot up, then Restart the  Windows.Explorer process anywhere from 1 to 6 times to bring the taskbar with start menu back to life. I'm completly devestated that even in the update I got today, it's still not fixed.  How can this not be of Paramount important to Microsoft..@KillaHaddy 



Hi I'm also getting a lost taskbar - highly irritating. Where exactly do I put this - I am a novice:

 "Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}" 


Thanks very much.

Yes, I uninstalled a different one based on the latest date and it worked.

Thank you, this resolved my problem ✔✔✔☺:blue_heart:
