Windows 7: Remove Default Icons on the Superbar

Remove Default Icons on the Superbar

Hi,

I would like to know is there any permanent way of removing the default icons in the superbar? For example, I use AIM, the latest version and whether I close it or minimize it, it shows in the system tray as well as in the superbar, which when you right click you get extra and added functionality which I don't want. How do I remove that icon from the superbar but keeping it in the system tray? How would I do that for any future program that may function the same way? Thanks.

Ryan

Running in vista compatibility mode works for Windows live messenger. It doesn't seem to work for AIM.

@alwinwinjoe: No, the program is all ready unpinned. Thanks though.

Hi there!

Oh sorry, my mistake. I think you mean this.

I suppose it might also work with AIM.

Hope I helped!
