    What's this little icon?

    Just noticed this when rebooting and it doesn't stay there for long.

    It's the one on the LHS of the system tray, a circle with a dot inside it.

    Any ideas?

    No pic but it does mention a new icon for Task View whatever that is http://blogs.windows.com/bloggingwin...now-available/ but the only thing I could equate a temporary icon to is the Action Centre flag icon you get in Win 7.

    Have you tried clicking or hovering over it ?

    Looks like it's the triangle icon that expands the System tray. here's my System tray:

    Sudo, here's an article on Task View:

    I don't find it useful and disabled it's icon long ago.

    It is for the Location service.

    Thanks Jerry, that's the article I found a little later after posting when I decided to look it up.

    Cheers Joe, pretty certain that is it. It only appears for a second or 2 after a reboot.
