    No OneDrive icon after reboot


    I set up OneDrive and a OneDrive icon appeared in system tray. But after reboot it is missing. I have an option to always show all tray icons selected. What should I do? Put skydrive.exe into autostart?

    The Service should already be set for a Automatic Delayed Start, or just Automatic in Services. You can verify in Task Manager in the Services tab. It is common for the Onedrive icon to no longer show in the Icons on the right.

    What's the name of the OneDrive service? I do not see it in the services list.

    It says to add the icon I have to install the update, but I have all up-to-date updates installed.

    Do you have the KB2923768 update installed?

    When you open File Explorer, do you have OneDrive in the navigation pane?

    In that case, open the modern OneDrive app to see if the notification area icon will show afterwards. If it does, you can close the OneDrive app and still have the icon show.

    If not, then run the C:\Windows\System32\SkyDrive.exe file to see if the icon shows afterwards.

    Of course it does. This is exactly my question: should I put it into autostart?

    If this is just a one time incident, then there's no need to.

    Only if the OneDrive icon will not show by default every time you restart the computer, you could place a shortcut to the .exe in your Startup folder.
