I have a particular setup where a specific program installed gets minimized to the notification area. I would like this to always be visible (along with several others). Regardless of whether I hide notifcations for certain programs, the system chooses not display a particular one unless I click on the double chevron up arrow. Is there a way to just force the tray area to larger size?

You can tick the checkbox Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar to show them all, and as far as I know it doesn't have a maximum size (if it doesn't fit however, make the taskbar bigger in height to fit more icons).

The checkbox can be found by clicking on the double chevron up arrow > Customize > at the bottom of the window


Start > Control Panel > Notification Area Icons
