I have a number in system tray which is 7 in this picture:

enter image description here

What is it? If it is a number of some messages, then how to see them?

If I hover mouse it says

but I found no way to see these notifications.

    It's just Windows, lower your expectations. If you reboot, the number will be correct. – Aganju Dec 11 '18 at 20:50

  • just click it you will see application notification in it. The 7 means you have 7 notification from your applications such as Mail, outlook, games and others. – Joy Dec 12 '18 at 8:26

If there's nothing in the notification window that slides out when you click the icon, try clicking on the various buttons at the bottom of it, using the Expand link if necessary to see more buttons. If that doesn't work, then maybe Aganju's on to something.
