  • Hey Andrew,

    Since your question is different than the question asked by the original poster of this thread I have split your response into its own thread. If you are reading this message from your email, you can access your new thread by following these steps:

    • Visit the MSDN forums
    • Sign in using the link in the top right corner of the page (if you are not already signed in)
    • In the right column, click My Threads

    Try restarting the Windows Explorer process to see if that resolves the problem that you are encountering:

    • Close Windows Media Player
    • Open the Desktop
    • Right click the Taskbar
    • Click Start Task Manager
    • Click More details (if you see this option at the bottom left corner of the Windows Task Manager window)
    • Right click Windows Explorer under Windows processes
    • Click Restart

    Then open Windows Media Player to see if you still have the same problem.

    Hope that helps.

  • No restart option in processes, it doesn't even show up in services.  When I kill it in processes, the taskbar and my icons vanish.  Normally they come back after several seconds, but not this time.

  • Hey Andrew,

    Follow these steps to restart Windows Explorer after you end its task. This should bring your Taskbar and icons back.

    • Click File in Windows Task Manager
    • Click New Task(Run...)
    • Type explorer.exe in the Open: field
    • Click OK

    It sounds like you may be using a previous version of Windows instead of Windows Developer Preview. If so, please reach out to the Microsoft Answers community linked below for further assistance regarding Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP:

    Hi Andrew L. Rowe,

    If you just go down more under the Processes in the Task Manager and look under Windows Processes for Windows Explorer folder, you will see it.
