I started PhotoSync companion on Windows 10 but I cannot find it? Where is it?

PhotoSync Companion is only visible in the system tray (the system tray is located in the Windows taskbar, usually at the bottom right corner next to the clock. It contains miniature icons for easy access to system functions such as antivirus settings, printer, modem, sound volume, battery status, and more. Hover over or click an icon to view and access details and controls).

By default icons in the system tray are grouped together so it might be possible that the PhotoSync Companion icon is not visible by default. It is then hidden behind the icon with the little up caret:

If your PhotoSync Companion icon is hidden in your system tray and you want to permanently make it visible, just right-click on the windows task bar and select the Taskbar settings to enter the Windows settings for your taskbar:
