avast system tray icon missing
« on: July 24, 2022, 07:51:02 AM »
so, I noticed my avast system tray icon was missing, and I went and checked to make sure it was enabled in avast(thank you windows 10 start menu).

it is enabled.

I checked taskbar settings..and the toggle to enable its appearance or have it hide, is missing.

...did one of the more recent updates to avast break its system tray icon?

just because you dont see a problem, that does not mean it doesn't exist. keep an open mind.

Have you looked in "Show hidden icons" using the up-arrow icon at right of the tray?

Try a repair of Avast. See if after the reboot things are back to normal.
