Exactly - no setting on that customise page made them show up, not even the "restore default icon behaviors". But a reboot did restore them.

It was all the third party icons that had disappeared. Normal behaviour was restored by reboot - still no idea why they all disappeared.

No the "show hidden icons" one - could have made that clearer - will do.

Clarify that I'm talking about the "notifcation area"

comment how to restore a misbehaving/customised taskbar notification area
I found where to re-customise back to the default settings - right click taskbar, select properties, and there is a "customise" option for the "notification area". That brings up the window which did the damage... and even allows for a "Restore default icon behaviours". But I'm still back to only one icon where there should be 6-8 of them.

Between your answer and your comment, I'm accepting the answer - I think it looks like it is going to give enough people enough options - thanks. In the end (as noted in comment to question) I ended up getting the answer courtesy of the guy on site.

In the end I found a workaround for what I was trying to do... and got a message to the person who assured me that they knew to put a USB3.0 device into a blue jack :-) But I'd still think it's a question I'd like to be able to answer in future. I was remoting via LogMeIn.

Tried it... but none of the Device Manager entries expand like you show. At least not for me on either of the two Win8 machines I have access to.

comment Hide Win 8.1 “tip” about “Switch between apps”?
This answer is a "fight against it!" kind of answer. If you would prefer a "work with it :-)" kind of answer, see the one I just added.

comment Can I run a 32-bit Win7 virtual machine from 64-bit Win8
Perhaps this belongs in a separate question... but what happens if you try to make the two machines (host + virtual) share the same network connection? Does that "just work" too? The tool we use is (in effect) a network sniffer.
