Windows 7: Taskbar - Custimization question

Taskbar - Custimization question

If this is the wrong area to post this question, please excuse.
Also, this may going too far with the "neatnick" in me, however:

When I click on "show hidden icons", and then "customize", items show up there ("select which icons and notifications appear on the taskbar") which are no longer even installed on my W7 Home Premium system. How can I clean up this area so that what's offered to me matches only items on my system?

Thanks,
Dick Y

Check out this article for a reg tweak to clean it up.

Alternatively you can google "Win 7 notification area cleanup" and you will also find a few tools to do it.

Thank you, NilsE. The registry tweak described in the first item you mentioned worked perfectly for me.

Best,

Taskbar Question
Hello, This isn't all that important, more of "I wonder why that happened" kinda thing. My Taskbar at the screen bottom used to have some coloring on it. Made it a lot easier to see the icons. The Taskbar now is pure white, and although all the icons are still there, some of them are very...
