So you want to hide it all the time, except when you want it to show something after you told it to hide forever?

So this guy is kinda a but since this is the most recently updated thread on this and I had this exact question that I figured out for myself and thought I would share.

Right click on the upward pointing arrow that is to the left of the flag and choose properties. Now like the other poster said you can turn it completely off, but I want to know if I have new updates or whatever reason I want.

There is a little blue link below that says Customize Notification Icons. Click it, and set the flag to be the same as the others - only show notifications (from show icon and notifications).
