View Full Version : Unwanted Icons

I have forgotten what you call the little row of icons down the bottom right hand corner of windows XP screen. This is at the extreme right end of the task bar. How do I get rid of unwanted icons that I don't want in this little panel ?

Right mouse on the taskbar / customize.

Altho this doesnt always work, whether u hide or show them.

Start - Run, type msconfig, press enter.
Click the Startup tab. Untick everything you don't want.

You can also customise which icons to show/hide in the notification area with XP. Just play around and select what actions you want.

See here how to: Description of Notification Area Settings (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=279771)

Edit: just realised this is basically what Speedy suggested.
