Using Windows 7, I am running WhatPulse. It generates annoying notifications in the system tray that I just don't need to see. The administrator on WhatPulse forums refuses to accept there is a problem.
I prefer the option "Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar", as I don't want programs that are running to be hidden. However, I don't want to see any notifications at all, although suppression of notifications would be handy for specific icons.
I can't select to not see notifications, but be able to see the icon. That's the biggest gripe. I want the icon so I can right click it to open it up, but the annoying notifications are useless.
