USB-stick not readable in Windows

I have a USB-stick, formatted in LinuxMint 19 with FAT32, I have no problems reading and writing on. But if I take it to a Windows computer it will not read the stick. Permissions seem ok with owner read+write, goup read and others read. What could be the cause or how to prepare a USB-stick to be used with various operating systems?

Use the default program "Disks", this should fix it.
Menu > Accessories > Disks

Select the drive, then click the cogs icon for options.

Try Format or Repair Filesystem. Should be fine after this.
