It is recommended that staff who experienced last Friday’s Microsoft issue, restart their computer. Then re-pin applications that disappeared from their Taskbar.

As a reminder, the Taskbar is similar to the Dock on an Apple computer, and appears at the bottom of the Window. Users can "pin" applications to the taskbar for quick launch and icons for any open applications will be viewable on the Taskbar. Clicking on the icon on the taskbar will either open the application or bring it to the forefront of the screen.

Pin an app to the Taskbar from Start Menu

In the search box on the taskbar, type the name of the app you want to pin to the taskbar. Right-click on the app, then select Pin to the taskbar.

To unpin an app, follow the same steps and select Unpin from taskbar.
