Default Unknown Icon In Notification Area of Taskbar?


From what I can tell it sounds like a num lock icon, maybe you can try
cutting it off on your keyboard

Default Unknown Icon In Notification Area of Taskbar?

Is it possible that the ICON is in the quick start area on the left end of
the task bar and not in the notification area on the right end of the task
bar? If yes then you should be able to right click on it an delete it.

Curious, excuse me I got my reply to you wrong. The icon IS in the
notification area but there is no title or any indication of what it is
for. I have noticed that a similar icon with an "A" on it appears next to
it when my caps lock key is on so, maybe it has something to do with my
keyboard. Unfortunately, no information came with the keyboard.

Go to Control Panel/notification area icons and determine what it is and
then you can turn it off if you want.

There is an untitled icon always present in the notification area of my
taskbar. This Icon appears to be a locked padlock with the number 9 on
it. When I pass my cursor over it no title or description appears and
nothing appears to happen when I right click, left click or double click
on it. I have searched the help files and browsed Windows Explorer
looking for a file with such an icon and have not found any. My hunch is
that icon must be related to some security feature. I am using McAfee
antivirus. If anyone could help identify this icon it sure would be
great.

Thanks,
Dennis

if it is indeed an onscreen display for the keyboard, try the keyboard
options in control panel to see if that notification can be turned on or
off; if the K/B has no led's to indicate Caps/Num or Scroll lock, that
onscreen feed-back may the be the only way you will know if those keys are
on.

Hi Dennis,

Did you ever get this resolved? I woke to this little yellow padlock icon in my taskbar notification area as well, just to the left of the power-indicator icon. It isn't num or caps lock. When I click on it, it disappears. Has this ever been resolved?

In the Windows 10 Settings System Notifications & Actions Select which icons appear in your taskbar: it shows up as a windows explorer icon. Apparently appears when some explorer process(es) are run??
