WD always starts in task bar at the bottom
« on: August 15, 2019, 07:04:43 AM »
Hi Folks I have a problem where WD starts of in the system tray bottom of pc.
Each time I start the WD it drops down and I can not get to WD to open so I can change the setting.
I have had this happen before but I can not remember how I fixed it.
Regards

Stuart

you can click on the icon to bring it back up full screen
and then change the setting under setup, start in system tray

Hi Brian,
Thank you for responding.
Yes I have tried that but it still is in the system tray.
I have even uninstalled the software but will not move from the system tray.
Regards

Stuart.

Hi Brian,
It stays down the bottom in the black area near the start windows start button.
Sorry I can not give you tech answers not up with IT language.

its not very clear what you mean by it stays down there
if you right mouse click on the icon you should see a pop up menu...show/hide
click on show

does the program show up?
if not it might instead be opening off screen

I had that problem a few years ago.
If i remember correctly I finally solved it by holding down the shift key (maybe it was the control key) and right click WD in the task bar and select maximize.

maybe worth a try.

Hi Brian,
I tried the shift key and it did open it up but it dropped back down.
Please see attached pic.

turns out it was an antivirus /security program that was blocking WD
