Thanks Dwarf

syk1k, have you thought about using this? To add a hidden icon to the notification area
  • Click the arrow next to the notification area, and then drag the icon you want to move to the notification area. You can drag as many hidden icons to the notification area as you want.

when i attempt to drag anything from the desktop to the notification area i get a circle with a red line through it pretty much telling me no, when i attempt to drag from the taskbar to the notification area the notification area simply closes down and hides. If i attempt to do it without expanding the notification area then the icon seems to get stuck just before the up arrow. Am i missing something or not understanding your post correctly?

ok so i see where you got that info from but i still cant make it work for me -> Change how icons appear in the notification area

ok i have found a solution, its not native to windows but it certainly works for people who are having similiar problems. download all in one tray for free using the link at the bottom. Run the exe which does not appear in the system tray but the notification area instead. Open the software you want to move from the taskbar to the notification area and make sure it is the active window then simply push the windows key + q and the icon dissapears to the notification area under the all in one tray icon.

thanks to everybody who attempted to help.
