Updating Windows 10 creates a problem with the taskbar

Windows 10 recently got a new preview update and that some users creates problems with the taskbar.

The reported problems have several potentially simple solutions

Patch KB5003214 is a preview of the cumulative update from June, but like the problems already known to Microsoft, there is a problem with the wrong icons on the taskbar, which was noticed by Windows Latest. This patch is for versions of Windows 10 for the May 2021 Update, October 2020 Update, and May 2020 Update (which are essentially the same versions, with minor changes to newer ones). KB5003214 started appearing earlier this week with some bug fixes, and the update also made the “News and interests” feature on the taskbar available to everyone.

Some users complain that this patch is a real problem in the system tray area of ​​the taskbar (in other words, the far right icons), which is obviously related to enabling “News and interests”. Icons in the system tray overlap or disappear and generally suffer from problems of one kind or another, especially with the “News” feature turned on. Others have noticed problems with Action Center notifications, and icons disappear or accidentally move in the system tray. Users noticed that uninstalling the update fixed the problem. Of course, preview updates are still being tested, so it’s no surprise that there could be issues.

Several potential simple solutions to the problem have been pointed out, and we have already mentioned one: simply uninstall KB5003214. However, there are also reports claiming that just turning off the News widget on the taskbar will solve icon problems, which is a much simpler solution. In any case, it is clear that there is some kind of problem here and we hope that Microsoft will solve it before this preview update is presented as a cumulative update from June.
