It is not clear from your post whether the missing icons are missing entirely or just choose to disappear behind the chevron.

If it is the latter, that is quite a common bug with the option to hide certain icons.

they are missing entirely ade.h but if i reboot I get them back but it's frustrating to have to reboot every time

Bear in mind, also, that the icon for some programs will only appear when that program is 'active' in some way. At other times the icon will be COMPLETELY hidden.

The icon for Windows Defender is an example of this behaviour.

Actually I helped myself. For some time now if I selected Mailwasher to minimise on start up, the icon would not appear in the Taskbar. The only solution was to let it run at full screen and minimise it after start up.
I had tried some of the fixes in the thread that I referred to, but couldn't find, above.
I tried the suggestions in the link above and found that Mailwasher now performs properly!!
