Do you have a bunch of icons next to your digital clock that are cluttering up your screen?   Is your antivirus program one of the “hidden icons” next to your digital clock?

Take charge with these instructions.

Note:  the following instructions are for Windows 7. 

Right click on a blank area next to the digital clock. This area is known as the “system tray” or the “notification area.” Click on “Properties,” “Customize notification icon.” Make sure that “Always show all icons and notifications on the task bar” is not check marked.  Next to each icon is a pull-down arrow with three options.  Select the desired option for each icon, OK

Here are the three options: 

Show icons and notifications:

For all programs that you have set to run automatically and want to monitor, such as antivirus and backup programs.  Also good for the Windows Action Center and similar monitoring programs.

Hide icons and notifications:

For programs that you don’t need to see.

Only show notifications:

For programs that you need to pay attention to – only when something is going on.  I use this setting for most of my system tray icons.

Not sure which icons to hide and which to show?  Show them all:  Right click on a blank area next to the digital clock. Click on “Properties,” “Customize notification icon.” Make sure that “Always show all icons and notifications on the task bar” is check marked, OK.
