Win11 new bug causes the taskbar icon to disappear: Microsoft released a temporary fix illustration
At present, Microsoft has made a response to the bug, clear the cause of the bug at the same time, gave a temporary fix.
It is reported that the culprit of the bug is Win11's IRIS service, which is suspected to be related to Windows Focus and other features, but Microsoft has never explicitly acknowledged it.
To fix the bug, you need to open the Command Character Manager (CMD) in administrator mode and then enter the command "reg delete HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\IrisService /f && shutdown -r -t 0".
This command will delete the registry value of IRIS service to solve the problem.
Generally, after entering the command, the system will automatically restart and the problem will be solved after booting.
It is worth mentioning that as early as 2020, Win10 had a bug that the taskbar did not display icons, but the trigger for the problem at that time was insufficient device memory.
