My battery indicator has been reliable for years, and today it hasn't showed up. I went to settings to pick which icons can appear in the taskbar area and the marked Power wasn't selected and the graphic is also blank. I tried to enable it and it did nothing. Man, yet another reason to switch.

Glad to hear you managed to get the icon back! Did it disappear after an update?

Let me check when the last update occurred, cause they happen without my consent sometimes...
The last update was on the 9th, and my icon disappeared yesterday, so I don't think it was the update. Another small bug is when I turn my computer on, and I'm greeted with the Bing Showcase screen, I press enter and it doesn't take me to the password screen. I'm forced to click on it with the mouse. But when I lock my computer and return, I can press enter and it works just fine.

Oh sorry, it's officially called the, "Window's Spotlight"
Go to your personalization settings, then lock screen, then the drop down has that as an option. The other options are Picture or Slideshow. :user:

Ah I see, I just have a picture for mine ;)
It's nice to have a new pic to look at every day. Sometimes my picture doesn't get updated for 3 or 4 days, I don't know why cause my other computer gets updated every day without fail :wall:

There are a few diff things that happens when I try to update:
1. Error
2. The download starts but never finishes
3. The download takes forever and eventually finishes
4. Sometimes I get lucky and it successfully updates.

If you click on "see details", what does the error show?

Thanks for the additional info :). First thing I'd do is make sure you are fully patched up (Settings > Update & Security > Check for Updates) - I'm sure that you're already up-to-date though. It looks like this error occurred a lot after an update released last year, at least from what I can find online.

I'd run SFC /scannow (+ DISM steps) and see what it shows - there's a bit of a tutorial here:


TBH, if you are having quite a few problems and there's no file corruption listed in the steps above, it may be worth just doing a clean install of Windows 10 and give the system a bit of a refresh :). I've just spotted that you are running Ubuntu in another thread though, so you may have made a jump already ;).

@Ian Thanks for your help honestly, but I did a refresh of Windows a few months ago and I still had trouble with updating the store apps even back then. I really think that there is something wrong with the update server in my area. And yes Ubuntu is now installed and I will be trying to put it through it's paces. :dance:

So the app store decided to successfully install updates today. Which indicates that the problem is not on my end, but the update server itself.
