Windows - Bluetooth icon missing from notification area

April 2018


I have accidentally removed the Bluetooth ico . Now when I turn on Bluetooth it won't appear in the notification area. How to restore it back?


  • Press on Start > Control Panel >Network and Internet>Under Bluetooth Devices, press on 'Change Settings for a Bluetooth enabled device,
  • In the new window select ''Show the Bluetooth icon in the Notification Area''.
  • Click on Apply and then on OK
