Eddie icon disappears in Windows 10

Recommended Posts

Sometimes, after a while, Eddie disappears so I cannot open the interface. The VPN connection is still active (and the process). I don't know how to reproduce this, but generally it happens after I've had it open for a while and then minimize it to the tray.

I've read this a few times on Linux but rarely on Windows, if at all. I found something similar in 2016 for which there are a few resources including a bug report on GitHub without a solution:
 
Windows 10 missing tray icon · Issue #39

Some suggest to simply restart Windows Explorer. Hardly a fix, and cumbersome if it repeats itself.
Also, maybe I'm overlooking a thread or two. Use your own luck, too, and search a bit around.

» If you choose to create a new thread, keep in mind that we don't know your setup. Give info about it. Never forget the OpenVPN logs or, for Eddie, the support file (Logs > lifebelt icon).

» The community kindly asks you to not set up Tor exit relays when connected to AirVPN. Their IP addresses are subject to restrictions and these are relayed to all users of the affected servers.

Thanks for attempting to help out. I found that thread after I posted this one. And like you say, there doesn't appear to exist a good fix as of yet. I will go thread hunting for a bit, see what shows up.
