Over the past few weeks, some readers have come across a known error code that causes minimized icons to not display in Windows XP. This problem can occur for several reasons. We will review them now.
Updated: ASR Pro
The template called explorer.Controls exe will display the taskbar and desktop icons. If for some reason this fails (e.g. you killed that box with the task manager and/or something more sinister like a disease removed it from your precious processes), try this first: /p>
- Open Task Manager (press Ctrl+Alt+Delete, then click Task Manager).
- On the Applications tab, click New Task in the lower right corner of the window.
- Enter explorer.exe and click OK.
If there is no more cause for concern, then everything should return to normal, and you can stop the panic attack, breathe easy and continue working.
- Open Task Manager (press Ctrl+Alt+Delete, then pressClick Task Manager).
- Access this Processes tab
- Click the Image Name column heading to sort the data set alphabetically.
- Find all explorer.exe files – each is defined by processes, then click “End Process” for each one.
- On the Applications tab, simply click New Task at the bottom of the window.
- Enter explorer.exe then display OK.11
Update: June 2008 I have found that SnagIt sometimes causes my taskbar to disappear. I’ve noticed this every time I have Windows login open and try to deploy a capture and SnagIt hangs. Using Task Manager to shutdown and restart SnagIt often brings up my personal taskbar. Of course, if you haven’t installed SnagIt after that, this won’t solve your problem!
Updated: 2 August 2008 This issue persists with SnagIt 9… I thought they fixed the program.
Updated: August 18, 2008 I contacted SnagIt Technical Support a little over a week ago and received a suggested response from them. I haven’t tried it yet .
Disable the SnagIt wrapper file extension to see if that helps:
- Close all programs.
- Select Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.
- Search for SnagIt in the list and deselect the Edit button.
- Select Edit and just click Next.
- If you click the drop-down arrow next to the Windows Explorer menu extension, all selection functions will be disabled.
- Click next and complete the wizard.
Why can I not see the tabs at the top of my screen?
The latest version of Chrome has the ability to customize the toolbar (which contains tabs) from the View menu. Shift-CMD-F is in presentation mode and hides the tab type. You want a full screen strategy instead, so use Control-CMD-F. Tabs should be displayed in full screen mode.
The taskbar on my Windows XP computer is hidden, how can I fix this?
The taskbar is highly customizable, as I explained in an old article:My taskbar is too small to be useful, what can I do? and then the related video in Lockergnome. You can test as many as you can to see if the issue can be set to auto-hide or if it has a size of 5.
CTRL+ESC always brings up any boot menu. At this point you will probably also checksettings, taskbar and start menu and make sure auto-hide is disabled and you will see the taskbar is unlocked.
Then when the height is actually set to a completely free height, you may see a very small thin bar instead of the responsibility bar. Preferably, you should be able to click, hold, and drag up to enlarge the image on your device.
My Windows XP Maker scrollbar was hidden, how do I get it back?
The taskbar is fully customizable, as I explained in a recent previous article:My taskbar is too cheap to be useful, can I do it? and a related video made in Lockergnome. You might want to help test this to see if it has been set to auto-hide, i.e. size zero.
CTRL+ESC always displays the boot menu. In this regard, you can also check Settings, Taskbar and Start and make sure that auto-hide is disabled and the taskbar is unlocked.Checked.
Where did my minimized windows go?
Get some sort of minimized window Hold down the Ctrl key and click the desired application’s icon in the Dock to bring up a menu, usually containing open windows. Click on the minimized window in the Dock. Control-click the application’s icon in the Dock, and select a window from the palette that appears. Or, if the instance has a window menu, select any window from it.
Where normally the size was mapped to zero height, you will correctly see a small thin bar because your taskbar was taller. You should be able to hit it, hold it, and pull it up to make it bigger.
How do I restore my taskbar in Windows XP?
Press all Windows keys on your keyboard to display the start menu. This should also seriously elevate the taskbar. Right-click on the now visible taskbar and select Taskbar Settings. Click the Automatically hide the taskbar in table view check box to make sure this option is cleared, or enable the Hide large parts of the taskbar option.

How do I unhide icons in Windows XP?
To show or hide All current desktop icons, right-click on your PC desktop, select View, and simply click Show Desktop Icons. This option works with Windows 10, 8, 7 and real XP. This setting enables and disables desktop importance. That’s all! This option is easy to find and even use – if you know it exists.
You can rearrange your office furniture, arrange your favorite knick-knacks on the shelves, and trim our plants to your liking. So why not customize Windows to your liking?
In fact, Windows XP is surprisingly flexible. This is fortunate, because one of the best available ways to deal with many Windows problems is to modify, tweak, or even hack the operating system to get rid of them.
PROBLEM: When I scroll through a folder in Windows Explorer or bind a page in Internet Explorer, it appears as “sticky” even though it needs to be lubricated. I say grease the monitor – this is a market question, but there is and will be a way to speed up the scrolling.
FIX: Microsoft calls this behavior “smooth scrolling” and luckily you can govern. To do this, you need a Microsoft program called TweakUI (free, http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx). Click on the Explorer category on the left side of the capture window (Figure 1-1) and in the results on the right, uncheck Smooth Device “Enable Scrolling”. Click “Apply” when you’re done.Improve your computer's performance by clicking here to download the software.
