Notification are missing

The little square notification area that has "Customize" in it is missing in Windows 7, where did it go???

That's the area where icons can be stored. Right now they are on the taskbar.

Hello mate, :)

If you checked the Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar box in your Notification Area Icons settings, then you will not see the arrow icon on the taskbar for the "Customize" option in its menu.

Hi Brink, just found the problem. "Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar" was checked.

Thanks very much.
