Hello,

I'm missing the battery icon and can't get it back even with the taskbar settings.

So, what's the solution?

I tried that before, the problem is the icon is not showing with the other icons in the taskbar menu at all!

I followed this solution on the provided link and worked :)

Disable and Re-enable Microsoft Drivers

Open the Windows Device Manager.
Expand the Batteries section.
Right-click on the "Microsoft AC Adapter" and "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" devices and select the Disable option.
Right-click on the two devices again and select Enable.
Restart the laptop and see if the battery icon is now visible in the notification area on the taskbar.
Tip: You may not see one or both of the "Microsoft AC Adapter" and "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" devices in the Batteries section. To get both devices to show, click the Action menu at the top of the Device Manager window and select Scan for hardware changes. See if both devices are now displayed in the Batteries section.
Thanks,
