Because you might be aware, Windows 10’s latest monthly security update has a problem with the taskbar. This problem was first reported after Microsoft supports the news and interests for everyone, and it affects users who run updates 2021 May, October 2020 updates and updates in May 2020, and version 1909 (version 1909).
According to Microsoft reports and documentation, the news button and interest in the Windows taskbar may have opaque text. Besides opaque text, icons may not make it correctly for other applications, such as To-Do, Chrome, EDGE, etc.
Although it did not mention repairs to the damaged taskbar icon bug in a release note, in our test we observed that Microsoft finally patched this bug. For those who did not realize, the taskbar bug also damaged the system tray icon, including the notification center and a calendar flyout.
The affected user reports that the task bar icon can be fully lost due to train updates, impacting the performance of several applications and Windows 10 features, such as voice and notifications.
On July 12, Microsoft has not officially acknowledged the problem of the taskbar, but if you have this problem, installing cumulative updates today must help.
If you continue to have a taskbar problem, you can change the location of the taskbar and move it to the top of the screen. Or you can also play with settings> Systems> Display> Arrangement settings. For example, make sure you use the ‘suggested’ option for your scaling settings.
You can also try to reactivate news feed and interest.
