Finding a Missing Keyman Menu

If you cannot find the Keyman icon for the Keyman menu, it may be in the hidden notifications area of the Windows Taskbar. Check for the Keyman icon by clicking the arrow or triangle next to the Windows clock.

If the Keyman icon is in this collection, you can optionally move it permanently to the Windows Taskbar, to make it more easily accessible. However, Keyman will run correctly even if the icon is left in this collection.
