Windows 7: Status Bar Restoration

Status Bar Restoration

I am not sure "status bar" is the correct name. It is the icons on the bottom right of Windows. I use Windows 7. At one time, they were all combined under one icon but now all appear individually taking up a lot of space. I have looked but cannot find a way to restore the original appearance. Can anyone help?

Hi,
Right click your taskbar on a blank space and select Properties,
On the taskbar section click on the notification area Customize button
On the bottom left you'll see a link turn system icons on or off click on it,
The next page you'll see another link on the bottom left to restore default icon behavior

You can also uncheck the box if it's checked to always show icons.
