PhotoSync Companion is only visible in the system tray (the system tray is located in the Windows task bar, 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. Click on this icon to show the hidden icons:

When you're lucky or you changed your system tray settings, the PhotoSync Companion icon is visible directly in the Windows task bar:
