I'm somewhat bothered by the needless presence of a scroll lock indicator and a touchpad toggle in my system tray (since Windows 7 also known as a notification area).
Specifically, the two ugly icons in the bottom of the overflow:
The mouse-over for these tray icons reads "Scr Lk Off" and "Touchpad: On", respectively, and the Windows Notification Area Icons window reveals that they're associated with VAIO Control Center.
I've already moved them into the overflow, but choosing "Customize..." and setting both associated options to "Hide icon and notifications" appears to have no effect.
I cannot fathom why anybody would use this, as there are function-key shortcuts for both these options. (Although there's no indicator for scroll lock, I really couldn't care less what its setting is as I've in 20 years never found a use for it.)
Is there any way to get rid of these system tray icons?
