Hello, recently I updated my windows 10 (21H2), it works fine for me, but some days back when I restart my PC, I saw that battery icon missing from the taskbar. I searched this on the Internet but not solved the problem, and at last, I have only one solution is to reinstall the windows, but this time I am not want to do this if i reinstall the Operating my all data will remove. so can anyone help me to solve this?
Thank You

Create a shortcut to the system icons list and you should be able to add it back in.
%windir%\explorer.exe shell:::{05d7b0f4-2121-4eff-bf6b-ed3f69b894d9}\SystemIcons

Some people have reported that items in the list were greyed out so they could not be changed. No reason was apparent.

Best of luck,
Denis

Did you really mean "PC" as in a desktop/tower computer? Or do you mean laptop? Before someone jumps in and says, "obviously it is a laptop, PCs don't have batteries", that is not always true. If the PC is connected to a UPS (battery backup) with an interface communications cable, and the UPS software is installed, in some cases Windows sees that as a battery and displays the battery icon.

And are you sure it is not hidden? In the System tray area, there should be an up arrow icon, similar to this: ^. If you click on that, you will see the hidden icons. You can simply drag them down on to the taskbar so they will be displayed all the time.

Another option is to right-click any unused area on the taskbar to bring up the menu. Select Taskbar settings. Then, in the Taskbar settings, scroll down to the Notification area and choose "Select which icons appear on the taskbar". Make sure battery is set to On.
