Windows 7: Notification Area Icons - Reset

Hello Clair,

Q1) Deleting the registry keys alone will not work. The .bat file also has you restart the computer to apply.

Q2) Yeah, hide is basically just having the icon in the expansion arrow menu instead.

Q3) This will depend on the program developer.

Q4) This also depends on the program developer. Sometimes "Exit" will only remove the icon until the next startup, and sometime for good.

Thanks, Brinks. Very clear.

I kept a shortcut to this particular .bat in my Start Menu, just in case it's needed again.

hi
does it clean the position of the icons of the system tray?
i have noticed that windows remembers the position of the icon
for example when i load a program windows put the icon of the right corner of the system tray where i have th clock

does it clean where w7 stores these settings?

thanks

Hello drugo,

Yes, that will be reset as well, but you can drag them to any order you like again afterwards.

Shawn,

I have a question about your .bat modification and what it does as it relates to my scenario.

I use the hotkey and script program "AutoHotKey" a lot and sometimes I'll have several ahk scripts running in the background that I need to delete (using "Process Explorer", etc) before the scripts complete.

When I delete those script processes, as expected, the "orphaned" icons will remain in my System Tray unless I manually hover the mouse over them. Then they'll disappear from the Tray.

- Does your .bat job remove those orphaned Icons from the Tray?

- Do I need to restart the PC after running the .bat file each time, or can I run the .bat job anytime I need to delete orphaned Icons from the Tray without restarting the PC?

In other words, is a Restart required anytime I'd need to refresh the Tray (remove any orphaned Icons)?
