Taskbar question

Ok, I'm trying to set up my task bar so that some programs show up and some don't, but when I change to don't display all notifications and icons , my task bar trey area disappears and only shows that arrow thing.

How can I show some of my programs in the task bar and not have that arrow there?

You may need to go into "MSCONFIG" and disable some of the programs from starting with Windows. Also, some programs will let you disable the tray icon. Sometimes it needs to be done one by one.

I don't think you can have the "safely remove hardware" running anywhere else (that I know)

Some of the stuff like "action center" and "network" can be disabled in "turn system icons on or off" by right clicking down by the clock and hitting properties.

Ok I found the answer for any one that needs it , you can drag and drop icons from that arrow menu thing I mentioned, and add and remove like that , the arrow still shows up but now I have only the icons there I want
