Try right click on Taskbar, Properties.

Taskbar tab, Customize button. Check that all programs are not set to "Always show".

FIBREMAN, not too sure, but think the chevron only shows if there are Icons that are hiding, either always or when not in use.

Try right click on taskbar and choose properties, then "Customise". Click on one of the items and a drop down menu will appear giving three choices. 1) always show. 2) always hide. 3) Hide when inactive.

Set one or more of them to Hide when inactive and the chevron should then show on the taskbar. you may need to wait for a while for it to appear though.
