I'm in need to know where the position and order of the Icons from the System Tray are stored. (notification area)

I'm talking about these ones:

enter image description here

I've been trying to go through some reg files and my own guess is that it's somewhere here:

"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\MuiCache"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Compatibility Assistant\Store"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Compatibility Assistant\Persisted"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\MUICache"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ComDlg32\OpenSavePidlMRU"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ComDlg32\LastVisitedPidlMRU"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ComDlg32\LastVisitedPidlMRULegacy"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ComDlg32\OpenSaveMRU"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\UserAssist"
  • I don't believe this information is stored in the registry at all but only in memory and not user accessible – LMiller7 Jun 18 '18 at 22:03
  • I've read it's not possible too, but I've seen some registries showing this, not sure about IconCache, – Joh Doeh Jun 18 '18 at 22:10
