Avast VPN No Longer in System Tray
« on: April 15, 2024, 11:16:52 PM »
Ever since I installed Avast VPN it intermittently disappears from the system tray.  I cannot find anything in settings to pin it there either.  How can I make sure the icon stays in the system tray?

I've the same issue.

If I shut my system down, it will always show on start.

If I put system to sleep, sometimes it will vanish on logon. 

Fix is below:

Taskbar icon is running but I need to double-click the Avast VPN shortcut on desktop to make it show again. 

No icon does not equal no VPN service running, it is running behind the scenes where you cannot see it.
Windows 10 Home 64-bit 22H2 Microsoft Windows Defender - Windows 11 Home 23H2 - Windows 11 Pro 23H2 Avast Premier Security version 24.4.6112 (build 24.4.9067.762) UI version 1.0.803

Thanks!  I'll give it a try.
