Recently, the little left/right arrow button is missing in my taskbar
notification area. This is the little button to hide/unhide inactive icons in
the taskbar.

I did not have system restore active so no need to try restore.
I have tried some second source utility programs to hide/unhide icons to no
avail.

I have tried logging in as different user, no luck. I have tried enabling
and disableing
the "hide inactive icons" checkbox in taskbar properties with no luck.

Just can't get that little round button back.

Gurus, a little help please, I have icons all over the place in the taskbar.

Never mind folks, the damn thing came back on it's own.

I didn't do anything to bring it back. Very strange.

Thanks anyhow.
