  • There is no such thing as a "system tray". It's called the "taskbar notification area". Aug 8, 2011 at 12:33

    @cody I think during the time of windows 98 the taskbar notification area was referred to as system tray

Take a look around this site:


The screenshots for it seem to show a system tray like what you're after. Might also want to take a look at:


  • The first link says "In this case, the change is only a facade as hidden icons will continue to open XP style. " and i am already using those apps in the second link. It doesn't do the job
