    Default Missing Battery Icon

    The battery icon on my task bar keeps disappearing no matter what I do. I've looked at other forums that have solved this problem, but it doesn't stay fixed. I have Windows 10. I've tried going into settings -> system -> notifications -> turn icons on and off, but the option for battery can't be selected.
    And I've tried going into devices manager and disabling AC adapter and ACPI-compliant control method battery and then re-enabling them. This makes the icon come back, but it will always go away again later.

    Depending on what version of W10 you have, there are some other fixes. Do you have Home or Pro ?

    Others have also updated their BIOS ( from the manufactures site) and fixed it.

    This is from another forum, cant test it as non of the laptops have pro installed, only desktops ( which don't have a battery meter)

    1. Go to start or click in search, type in gpedit.msc and press enter.

    2.Navigate to expand User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Start Menu and Taskbar and disable "Remove the battery meter".

    3. restart

    Similar to the other solutions, the battery icon reappeared, but it vanished again when I turned it on after turning it off for the night.
