Permanently hiding icons in taskbar

Posted: 02-12-2009, 08:02 PM
Hello!
I have installed some programs on the computer of my kids and I dont want
them to fiddle with their icons which are found near the time...they are
closing the programs all the time. I dont even want to hide the icons, I
want them gone from the taskbar without effecting the operation of the
program. I know XP allows icons to be always hidden but then you can reveal
them by clicking on the small arrow buttons...i dont want that, just want
them gone.
Thanks!

Hello TEK

Double check in the program's settings to see if it has a option t
remove either it's the Notification, tray, system, or taskbar icon

Hope this helps

Icons that appear over by the time (notification area) are usually put
there by the programs themselves. Some programs allow removal of the
notification icon by using the program tools options. Icons like the
network connection icon can be removed by unchecking the "show icon in
notification area when connected" box. Other than that, you really hove
no control over notification icons.
