    Clock & icons have disappeared from taskbar


    I've recently somehow made this issue where I was messing around with my taskbar (moving it to the left, top and right of the screen) and somehow I managed to make the icons and clock disappear.

    I went to my system icons and they all show as 'ON', and I tried hitting default behaviors too. I have no idea how this has happened. I have tried searching but all results tell me about setting the icons to 'ON' on the system icons, which they already are.

    Can anyone suggest anything?

    Thanks a ton!

    Turn out it was a setting underneath 'multiple displays' and there was a check on 'show taskbar on all displays', turning that off seems to remove it completely, even though I only have one display - weird. Thanks anyway!
