December 2016





It may happen that the notification area becomes over-loaded with a lot of unnecessary icons.

To clean it up, simply follow this procedure:
  • Right Click on the Start Menu (Orb button with the Windows logo)>Properties >Notification Area tab
  • From there you can sort out the items you want to hide permanently
  • Click on the Customize option to apply your own settings.
