    Right click on it and make sure it isn't turned off.

    This sometimes shows with the Windows Explorer icon same "preview".

    Anyone else?
    I've been seeing the "non-existent" window on both my Win 8 desktop and notebook for awhile now, and it seems to be related to my Outlook syncing up with GMail. I'll get several of them building up in the taskbar over time but if I click on one of them they all go away.

    I should note that since yesterday's updates I haven't seen one of them yet. Fingers crossed...

    Not solved...

    Not a bug. That happens when wallpapers change automatically on a timer.

    Posted in another thread . This happens when you have an external monitor plugged into a laptop.

    1) press windows + P keys (just the Windows and the P key). Menu appears. Switch display to appear on external monitor only.
    2) power off the machine (properly via power off menu).
    3) disconnect external monitor
    4) Boot up again -- screen goes blank after initial login. You have to plug the external monitor back in and press Windows +P keys again to get menu to switch display back to standard one again.

    Bit inconvenient when using your computer on a Eurostar train in the Channel Tunnel or if you are in a plane.

    For a simple solution. You can try check out with this thread "Phantom Icons on taskbar"

    It works for some reason. Mine also.
