Windows 7: Notification Area Problem

Notification Area Problem

Hi all.. Have a very random annoyance here. The "show hidden icons" arrow in the notification area will sometimes randomly go all the way to the right of the screen and the tray icons and even the time and date will disappear. If I hit the arrow, it returns to normal and moves over to the left and shows the icons and clock. Not sure what I am doing that is causing this. Using Win & 64 bit and this install is only 2 weeks old. I do remember it doing this some time ago when I first installed it.

Hello Cvor,

You might see if resetting the notification area icons may be able to help with this.

Hope this helps,

Notification area
I've read Brink's excellent tutorial on how to change this area's settings. I changed the length of time a message appears. I'd like to test what I've done. How do I create a benign notification or action center message to test how long it remains on the screen? Thanks.
