Missing Webroot icon from taskbar

Hello, Recently my Windows 10 OS was corrupted but repaired. However, the Webroot icon in my taskbar is now gone. I’ve checked the Webroot site and it seems that I’m still covered but I’m not sure if Webroot will notify me when they’re running a scan on my system ( I prefer to see these pop-ups as they are reassuring).How can I get the icon back and will Webroot continue its notifications?

Right click on the arrow pointing up on the taskbar. Select taskbar settings at the bottom..  .

Scroll down to select which items appear on the taskbar & click.

Turn on Webroot in the list


Hello stevecosta, Thanks for your response. The Webroot  icon does not appear on my taskbar settings page. I have been able to put Webroot on the Start list. But I’m looking to get notifications from Webroot. So if I could  place Webroot on the notifications area of the taskbar, then would Webroot automatically know that I want notifications?

Hello TripleHelix, Very helpful answer, but I had Geek Squad do this remotely as this was a little too complicated  for me to handle alone at my current level of  proficiency.  However you gave me good insight.  Thanks, byebyebirdie.
