Win7 Notification Area/Taskbar help

425 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  legoman786
There maybe a million thread topics on this already, however, google did 0 for me.

Programs that that ran in the background, in the notification area, in Vista are now only staying in my taskbar in 7. I want them back in my notification area.

Steam has no problem with this, however, Windows Live Messenger and other programs that I don't want cluttering my taskbar are reluctant to go back into my notification area.

How do I (registry hack, etc) get them back to where I feel they belong?

Right Click on the Taskbar and hit Properties.
Under Taskbar tab, select Customize... for the Notification Area.
Slight problem Duckie... Those said programs are not in that list.

EDIT: Ok, you win... however, still on my taskbar. >_< This is getting very frustrating.

EDIT 2: Windows Live Messenger is still not going away. I refuse to email MS, those guys are gonna go by every line of text in those damned books they get from corporate and freeze when there is a problem not dictated in said books.
