Wamp server icon disappeared from taskbar

I've been using wamp server for a while now, until today. I tried to start wamp services and noticed that the icon disappeared. I've spent sometime now trying to find a solution for this since I know my wamp is working but cant find the icon to start wamp server services. I already checked the taskbar setting "Aestan Tray menu" which is on but still it wont appear.

How can I make it appear again?

Hi,

Have you looked in the hidden icons window of the notification area?
Click the vertical chevron to the left of the notification area:

then drag and drop Wampmanager icon in the tray:

Hello,

I'm facing the same problem, only the icon does not appear in the hidden icons.
I know my wamp server is working because I can access my localhost via the browser, but I can't find the wamp icon anywhere.

Thanks

Hi,

Did you launch Wampserver with a double-click on its desktop shortcut?

> I can access my localhost via the browser
Is this 'http:/localhost/' page the home page of Wampserver?

Hi,

I did double click it. I saw the icon appear for a sec and than disappear.

And I do mean the homepage of Wampserver.

Yeah, I've been noticing the same thing the past few days. At least on my Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop. Not a problem on my desktop. Both systems are running Windows 10 build 17692. Reboots and WAMP restart don't seem to help. And WAMP is definitely running.

Interesting. The past few days I didn't see the WAMP icon in the hidden icons on the task bar. This morning it showed up. Guess it healed itself because I didn't do a restart or anything else that would cause it to come back. Not that I'm complaining.
