Microsoft’s Windows 10 2004 update is causing the system tray icons to dance for some users


Dance bug: Windows 10 Version 2004 bug causes System Tray Icons to dance for some users

What would you think if your Windows system tray icons at the bottom right of your screen suddenly start dancing? Spooky!!! It so happens that the Microsoft’s latest May 2020 and June 2020 Windows 10 2004 version could make your system tray icons dance due to some bewildering bug.

The bug seems to affect touch devices that have been updated to the Windows 10 version 2004, or May 2020 or June 2020 Update. If you have a touch-screen enabled laptop with Windows 10 2004, you can notice the system tray icons dancing. The bug only affects touch-enabled laptops and tablets after they have been upgraded to Windows 10 version 2004.

How to fix the Windows 10 2004 system tray icon dancing bug?

The solution to the Windows 10 2004 dancing system tray icons is simple. You can try to update your touch screen drivers which are compatible with the Windows 10 2004 version. Since the Windows 10 2004 version is relatively new the drivers may not be available. In such a case, the only workaround is actually disabling the touch screen completely.

Visit your Windows 10 Device Manager and disable the touch screen. Some users have reported that toggling tablet mode options on and off also resolves the problem but only temporarily. You should try either of the two to stop your system tray icons from dancing.
