Windows 7: System programs on the taskbar

System programs on the taskbar

Hello, In my lower right-hand corner, next to the clock, my system programs (network bars, volume, battery life, AVG anti-virus, Safely Remove Hardware, Intel Graphics, Audio Controls, WLAN: On, Synaptics Pointing Device, Adobe Updates, etc, etc.) are spread out across the taskbar. They used to be in a drop down list with only an up arrow appearing. And I could call them up with the arrow at anytime. Prior, I only had about 3 items showing at any given time and could bring up any others with the drop down menu. How do I get them all back in the drop down list on the far right side next to the clock? The clock has never moved. Thank you!

I found it! Under taskbar properties, notification area, I had toggled 'show icons all the time'. When this is toggled, it grays out any other choices. Thank you!

Glad you got it fixed! Isn't it nice to find/fix the problem yourself? We love to help, that's why we are here, but theres a certain satisfaction to figuring out and applying the needed remedies yourself, isn't there .

All of the sudden my taskbar won't pop up in certain programs. Have to minimize the program to access taskbar and this is very much a pita! I did a sfc/scannow in the command prompt and no corrupted files were found. Not sure where to go from here. Thank You

Some programs look ugly in the taskbar.
I'm enjoying Windows 7 and I really like how the taskbar functions (I use it as a application launcher pretty much, as an alternative to using icons on my desktop)... except with some software. For example, I have a game I play often. I pinned the updater to the game on the taskbar, since it's...
