Flickering icon on task bar

After a few minutes of my Acer 6930 laptop being on, an icon appears in the taskbar at the bottom and it constantly flickers. the icon has a white background with a red arrow which is curved in a counter clockwise direction. when i right click on it or scroll over it, no information comes up. this is really driving me nuts...

Hello,

I think its time you scanned your computer for viruses or Malware. I have seen this before and that is a clear indicator you might have a virus. Ad-Aware can scan for malware if you don't have Anti virus software check out AVG.

Good luck,
Armymason

How to lock the task bar when it does not showing on screen


It may be set to auto hide. Try moving your mouse cursor to the edge of the bottom screen. If it doesn't show up, try the other three edges of your screen.

Once located, right click on the task bar and choose "Properties" from the menu. On the window that pops up, simply uncheck the auto hide option. If the bar is already on the bottom edge, click on the "Lock the taskbar option." If not, drag the bar to the edge of the screen you prefer and then lock it.

How to enlarge the icons on the toolbar


If you mean enlarging the task bar items please follow the following steps:

1-Access the Taskbar and Start Menu. This particular menu will allow you to customize your taskbar features and resize the icons. Click on the Start menu, or Windows logo, from within your taskbar.

2-Select "Control Panel," then select "Appearance and Personalization." On some Windows 7 computers, this option may also read as "Appearance."

3-Click on "Taskbar and Start Menu." This will open a Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog box on your screen.

4-Change the size of the taskbar icons. Place a checkmark next to "Use small icons" within the Taskbar Appearance section to make your taskbar icons appear smaller.

5-Click directly on the checkmark if one is already present to enlarge the size of your taskbar icons.

6-Save your taskbar icon customization settings. Your new taskbar settings will go into effect immediately. Click on the "Apply" button to save your changes, then click "OK" to exit from the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties menu.

Hello we have a problem with our laptop the battery charging icon will not appear so we don't if it's plugged in, not charging, Charhing or Not charging?


On Windows Vista/7:
Right-click the taskbar and select "Properties." The list of system icons in the "Notification Area" tab includes the power icon. Check the box next to it to enable this icon in the taskbar.
On Windows XP:
Right-click a blank area on the Desktop and select "Properties." Go to Screen Saver and click on Energy. In Advanced Option you could check the checkbox so the icon will re-appear in the task bar.

Best regards,
Pelu.

The icons that were at the bottom Windows desktop have migrated to the LH side of the screen. How do I undo this?


If this is an xp, you need to first unlock the task bar. Right click on the task bar, click properties, and uncheck Lock The Task Bar. If it is already unchecked, all you need to do is drag the entire task bar back to where you want it by holding the left button, then release when the taskbar is where you want it to be.

In your desktop, Right click your mouse and properties will show and look for show desktop option. And then move your mouse to the bottom of your computer screen, if toolbar will show, then your toolbar is set to automatic hide. Change the settings in your Taskbar and Start Menu Properties and change there the settings, uncheck the auto hide task bar.

My taskbar does not appear when I am viewing web pages


It sounds like you have your task bar set to auto hide. I'm not too familiar with this brand of laptop but if you are using windows you should be able to follow these instructions to fix this. If you know how to get to the control panel (start menu) and click on appearance and themes there should be a task bar and start menu icon there. Click on that icon and select how you want your task bar to be displayed.

Task bar


Uninstall Firefox. If the icon returns then lock the taskbar and reinstall Firefox. You might also consider Google Chrome I switched to that and found it even faster and more intuitive for searches. Alternatively you can right click on the Start button, go to Properties, Taskbar and peruse your options for taskbar options. Actually you should do that first since it is a Windows issue and not a browser issue.
