Some of the startup icons in my W10 system tray are not visible unless I click on the downward facing arrow.

In Windows 7 there was a way to make all startup system tray icons visible, but I cannot find this function in W10?

 

Any help appreciated.

I've honestly never heard of that. Before Windows 10, you could choose how the system tray icons would be displayed, but I never heard of an option that let you show by default every single startup program icon in the system tray.

Strange

 

My arrow points up

 

If youre talking about the menu bar at the bottom of the page. I think you can have up to 12 icons on it

 

You can unpin and pin stuff to it

 

But maybe you mean something else?

You can do the same by simply dragging the icons around (in the hidden section, and in the visible section). That's how I did mine.

Oh okay now I get what you wanted to do. I thought you wanted to manage only the icons showing up (and not the hidden ones), my bad.
