Bitdefender does not appear in taskbar.

I had this issue previously, and I re-installed Bitdefender to fix it. Also, I have checked the start-up programs, and everything is fine. Please, could you tell me how to fix this issue permanently? Below, you may find a screenshot that illustrates the problem.


  • Hello @kevin1998,

    Try the following:

    1. Select Start , scroll to the Bitdefender app, then press and hold (or right-click) the app. Select More > Pin to taskbar.
    2. If the app is already open on the desktop, press and hold (or right click) the app's taskbar icon, and then select Pin to taskbar.

    If this doesn't work, try the steps below:

    1. Search "Bitdefender" in Windows Search Option.
    2. After Bitdefender app comes in search result, right click on it, hover to select "Open file Location" by left click. This will take you to a shortcut of the app. Now right click on that shortcut and go in its "Properties".
    3. Under "Properties" tab you may find that the app icon is missing. There is an option to "Change Icon", left click on it. Then select "Bitdefender" icon.
    4. If you're already running the app, then the icon will still appear blank. Close the app from the taskbar. Then reopen the Bitdefender app and check if the icon is accurately displayed in the systray.

    If this doesn't fix it, let us know and we can troubleshoot further.
