Just search for Notification Area Icons in Control Panel. There you can adjust which icons you wan't to see and when. This is an original and safe Windows functionality. Better not tamper with Windows libraries if you are not a programmer or at least 100% sure what you are doing.

Currently it's not possible to make Windows 7 taskbar clock display the seconds without 3rd party app. However, 7+ Taskbar Tweaker from http://rammichael.com/7-taskbar-tweaker adds this functionality with one single click:

To expand on JLM's post, if the "Pin to Taskbar" option is not available even after following Travis's instructions, it might be because the name of the shortcut file or executable has DISALLOWED TEXT. (This was my experience even after creating a separate shortcut. I.e., I had the word "Help" in the name of the shortcut's file name, so there was still no ...

A simple solution would be to pin it to the taskbar: Step 1 - Create and pin a generic exe right click anywhere on desktop hover over "new", then click "text document" rename the new file to: Contacts.exe Right click on the file and select "Pin to Taskbar" Step 2 - Change the target Hold Shift + right click on contacts.exe in the taskbar Go to ...

My guess would be that for each color, starting from the top, you get the R, G, and B values, and from them you take the highest and lowest of the three and compare them. The color with the biggest gap between the highest and lowest would be the brightest color in the image. Now in the case of, say, the Chrome icon, there might be several colors tied for ...

I'm not using Cinnamon, so I can't check but, here's the general idea. Follow these instructions for adding an application launcher to the taskbar. Ie. If you don't already have a launcher, choose any app in your menu, right click and choose "Add to panel" (you can remove it after the second step). Then right click the launcher area and choose "Add" to ...

Now I think I have found out the reason, but I haven't got any idea how to fix it. For a minimized-maximized window (responsive or not), if I right click the taskbar button and select "Restore" twice, the window will first become non-minimized, and then become non-maximized. This may be what is happening in the question. If I left click a taskbar button, ...

After Karan answer I think this is a little bit useless now, yet having spent some time on it I decided to share it anyway. As said before, the best way to suit the needing is an application that "enhances" Windows 7 taskbar in a way to make the number of grouped windows to show just within the relative icon, but it seemed nothing like that already existed ...

This can be done now with the help of 7+ Taskbar Numberer (developed by RaMMicHaeL, who's also behind the brilliant 7+ Taskbar Tweaker). If you start the program with the -v4 command-line parameter, it will display the number of grouped windows/taskbar buttons for each application as long as the program is running: If you start the program with the -v5 ...

My guess is that you're not changing the icon of the actual executable, but rather some shortcut. Even if it SEEMS like the executable; not all shortcuts have the little peel icon. Run program, from Task Manager, see what's the actual executable and change that. If it doesn't update, restart 'Windows Explorer' from Task Manager. For further help, we'd ...

I have discovered a method that works 100%. Here a illustrated guide https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_XQMJ3MrzxlQlloQW5RTnJ6Ymc/view?usp=sharing Update A even better method is as described here http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/985014-guide-pin-programs-with-custom-launchers-to-taskbar/

http://www.euclidnet.com/how-to-fix-duplicate-taskbar-icons/ solved it for me: Taskbar icons get duplicated when a shortcut is pinned to the taskbar, rather than the program itself. The solution is to find and remove the extra shortcut. The most straightforward way to do this is simply to right click and “Unpin” all the icons for the program in question, ...

It's probably best to simply change which monitor you're using as your main display. per: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2002029?wa=wsignin1.0 Right click the windows background Screen Resolution Click the thumbnail of the monitor you'd like the task bar on Notice the little "make this my main display" checkbox that appears check it.

As you will see elsewhere rebuilding the icon cache may work. For me, on Windows 7 64-bit, after installing Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, the icon for Opera suddenly became generic. Restarting the computer, re-pinning Opera to task bar did not help. As mentioned by Denja there is a solution in the SevenForums: ...

I'm using "StartIsBack" and I have to say that its a whole better experience than using stock MS WIN8 taskbar .. OTHER OPTION would be to install Modern MIX from Stardock's website and give it a try.
