Windows 7: Cleaning up the notification area


03 May 2010   #1

Windows 7
 
 

I have some programs that have I have uninstalled but when I click on customize notification area, they are still in that list

How can I clear the list of old programs?

The notification area also does NOT show my bluetooth icon which I set to "show icon and notifications"

It was there before but no longer there. I've tried restarting my computer but it doesn't fix the problem.

Ok I was able to clean up the notification area but it still does NOT show my bluetooth icon while I have a bluetooth dongle inserted in the USB.

Whenever I set it to show icon and notification, it tells me that "This notification icon is not currently active. It will be shown the next time it becomes active." But it always showed the icon in the past even when i wasnt using it.

I noticed that every time I set it to show icon and notifications, it keeps resetting back to only show notifications when i go back to the customization windows

Hallo Thumper,

If you wanted to clear & reset your notification area & start with a clean slate then have a look at this tutorial;

I am now just having problems getting the bluetooth icon to appear
