I still haven't learned how to make it start on Win8.1 or 10:
But I don't see it opening an X display, and the taskbar icon

Have you looked for the xwin-xdg-icon in your hidden icons? It's a
black C superimposed over a green X.
The icon stays up in the hidden icons. but seems to have little use.
Don't you get a menu when you click on it?
That menu has the option to shut down xserver or view documentation but
not to open an xterm.
I don't think we're talking about the same icon. The one I referred
to is a black C superimposed over a green X, and it has many options
to start programs, including XTerm (under System Tools). It's started
by the xwin-xdg-icon program, which in turn is started by
/etc/X11/xinit/startxwinrc (unless you have a ~/.startxwinrc that
overrides it). Does 'ps' show that xwin-xdg-icon is running?
I have occasionally got the xdg icon from which xterm can be started,
but I haven't found a reproducible way to bring it up.
Sorry, but I'm confused now. When you say "xdg icon", are you talking
about the one I described? Your previous message said you've never seen
that icon. Are you now saying that it does appear, but only
occasionally? Do you shut down the X server and retry when it doesn't
