Hide Windows Action Centre icon in System Tray when no problems?

How can I do this? When I rightclick the taskbar and choose notification area > customise, I have the "always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar" ticked (I much prefer this) but this stops be being able to choose "Only show notifications" for Action Centre (yet I can for other programs). How can I fix this? Thanks :)

The old 'i'll hide your tray icon' ploy
Anyone else noted that the tray icons come and go, no matter how you define them in the Customize panel? Mostly when restoring a window and then minimizing it to tray again. A Show Icon and notifications becomes a Only notifications again.
