Notification settings

Windows 7 has these options for notification area items:

What I want is the 4th possibility: Only show icon and hide notifications.

Is it possible?

I doubt it, but are you referring to Media Player Classic Home Cinema?

With notifications, it is all or nothing unless the particular program has the option within the program options.

Notifications - Enable or Disable Message Balloons

Well, some notifications might be considered desirable, even necessary. But if you are sure

@bill I'm sure I dont need any I have nothing much down there...just a network usage meter, volume, network, and anti virus icon. I need no notifications from my anti virus as its icon's color changes when it needs attention.

@booh I was asking for all icons in general.
