Welcome to the Forum

Unfortunately I don't know any.

Maybe Classic Shell will do what you want as you can configure the Start menu and Explorer to look like XP style.

I'm using Classic shell and XP skin for 3 years and I want only this to make my computer look and work like XP.

Thank for your reply.

I've looked but have never found what you are looking for, sorry.

My solution was to first turn off any tray icon that was not super important to me, then check the "always show all tray icons", which of course really just means "always show all tray icons OTHER than the ones I have turned off". The result is I never see that dumb overflow box, and the six icons I do show don't take up that much room.
