In Windows 7 if you have the
Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar option disabled, the setting for individual applications defaults to
Only show notifications.
Is there a magical way of changing the default to
Show icon and notifications instead of
Only show notifications?
Use-case: when a new application comes along and adds an icon to the system tray, it defaults to showing the icon and notifications. I like the majority of the icons down there as they offer quick access to whatever programs are running BUT I still want to selectively hide the few that I do not want to see down there.
If I enable
Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar I can't hide any. If I disable it, I have to go through every single application in the list and change the option, then keep my eye on it for any new applications. Hence my question.
