The settings for the notification area in Windows 7 have three options:
- Show icon and notifications
- Hide icon and notifications
- Only show notifications
Well here is my problem. I have a misbehaving application that doesn't have any settings to turn off notifications. And it keeps nagging me to update itself even though I know that the next version is not running properly. I do not want to see the reminder notification popup at all. But after all the application have some useful options that I use daily to perform tasks. These are accessible from the notification area/system tray.
I would like to silence the application by setting the option to something like:
- Only show icon
- Show icon and hide notifications
Otherwise I am forced to use the option "Hide icon and notifications" which makes me have to use at least one more mouse click every time I use the application.
A small problem in the great scheme of things... but very annoying (to me at least).
Is there any way to make the notification area behave like this?
