Hello Hikeman,

If you already have Action Center set to Only show notifications, then you might see if resetting the notifications area icons may help. However, I find that Action Center tends to not pay attention to what you have it set as.

Hey Brink. thanks for response!
I don't really get it what is this resting doing? as I understood it is hiding all the programs, which I've set "show only notifications" from System tray! correct me pleas, if I am wrong. If that's what it's doing then I guess I will not do the reset.
Thanks man

The reset will only clear the cache for the notification area icons to remove old ones. It will not change your settings, but may cause the Action Center to not display without a message to match your settings again.

You're welcome. Yep, it's the same and safe to use in CCleaner as well.

Hello, I was wondering about:

"5. To Unselect an Area for Action Center to not Monitor
A) Uncheck the item you want to not be monitored."

is there a way to change this via registry ???

thanks

Hello Cybercontroler, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I narrowed the settings for these to be in the registry key below, but I am unable to have REG files in the tutorial since the values are different on each system I tested it on when I turned them on and off. Because of this, it's to system specific to be used universally.
