Windows 7: How to hide the "customize..." link from the window of tray icons?

09 Jun 2013   #11


So, are you saying that you want absolutely no icons next to the clock? Like, not even that little arrow for hidden icons?

Or, are you saying that you don't want that link to be there that says "Customize"?

Right-click the Notification Area. Do you see that option called "Customize notification icons"? That's what I was referring to earlier. Both "Customize" and "Customize notification icons" bring you to the same control panel.

Anyway, what is it that you want to do exactly?

Hi, I want to remove (delete, not hide) some icons from the taskbar. There are some programs that, annoyingly, keep a tray icon so you can have easy access. This is good for some programs, like steam, or origin, but really annoying for a driver that is supposed to run in silent mode. (Yes...
