In this post, you will be guided on what to do if the Timeline feature in your Windows 10 computer is not working. Aside from that, this post will also show you how to enable the Timeline feature as well as how you can disable or turn it off along with the Activity History feature if you do not use them. Follow the given instructions below to get started.
Step 1: Open Settings from the WinX Menu and go to the Privacy section.
Step 2: From there, go to Activity History under Windows permissions where you will see on the right side a setting called “Let Windows collect my activities from the PC” – select this setting.
Step 3: Make sure that your Microsoft Account is selected under the “Show activities from accounts” section and that the toggle button is a switch to On.
Step 4: And if you want to sync your activities across devices, you need to select the option “Let Windows sync my activities from this PC to the cloud”.
Step 5: After that, restart your PC and check.
You should now be able to see the Timeline icon on your Taskbar and it should work just fine. However, if the icon is still not displayed, you can right-click on the Taskbar and click on the “Show Task View” button.
Moreover, if you want to see more days in your Timeline, you need to sign in to your Microsoft Account and click on the Timeline button then scroll down and click the Turn on button.
If it does not help, you can go to the Registry Editor but before you do anything with the Registry keys and values, you need to create a system restore point first. Once you have that covered, navigate to this registry path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System
Under the aforementioned path, you have to make sure that the following DWORD (32 bit) values are set to “1”.
And if you don’t see the listed DWORD values, you may have to create them and give each one of them the “1” value. To do so, simply right click on the right side of the panel and click on New > DWORD (32 bit) Value then name them with the names listed above. After that, double-click on them and assign each one of them the value “1”. And that’s about it.
