Can’t Find Battery Icon on Taskbar “Fix”

The battery meter should display in the tray by default if a battery is detected in the system.

  • Let’s try setting this manually. Please right click on the System Tray to surface the context menu (task bar).

  • Choose “Properties” off of the context menu–this will bring up the “Taskbar and Start Menu Properties” dialog box.

  • Select the “Notification Area” tab. At the bottom of the tab, is the “Systems Icons” area.
  • There is a check box for “Power” or you can change to “show icon and notification”.
