I have just upgraded to Windows 10 Pro and I did a reset to start everything from fresh. I installed the latest version of Adobe Reader DC. After using it once and closing it, the icon no longer appears. I tried uninstalling and installing again, but no icon from the onset.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Hi meabletime,

Have you created desktop icon or pinned Adobe Acrobat Reader DC in the taskbar?

Are you able to open Adobe Acrobat Reader DC through Start menu -> All Program?

Regards,

Aadesh

Hi

I can open Adobe Reader from a desktop icon, taskbar, and through the start menu> all apps, but in all instances there is no 'actual' icon but what looks like a placeholder. Please see the image below, the 3 red arrows show what I am talking about.

Thanks for the quick response,

MeableTime

Dear Aedesh the support guy:  Are you ever going to come back to the thread and help?  This bug was reported nearly a year ago and Adobe support hasn't bothered with it.   Literally everyone on Windows 10 has no proper icon for this app.   Seems like kind of a huge bug to just ignore?

Here is how to fix Taskbar Icons Missing In Windows 10

1- First of all, click on an empty space in the taskbar and from the context menu that appears, click on the Properties option.

2- A new window named Taskbar and Start Menu Properties opens up. Under the tab Taskbar, find and click on the button named Customize as shown in the screenshot.

3- Click on the option entry Notifications and actions from the left pane of the System Settings window. Now in the right window pane, look for a link that says Select which icons appear on the taskbar and click on it.

4- Now a list of icons appears from which you can select from. If you look at the taskbar now, you will now be able to see a nearly empty taskbar which can be customized by following the next step.

5- As next, turn on the toggle buttons corresponding to the icons that you want to see in your taskbar. As you turn on the toggle button corresponding to an icon, it appears instantly in the taskbar.

Bump.

This is a very annoying bug and present for already one year now. Sure, with jcamargo79 solution the icon can be re-stored but with every Reader update the icon is destroyed again.

Is any update-proof solution available?
