I have 'Hide inactive icons' ticked in the Taskbar properties.This means that after a while, icons in the Notification Area that have not been active 'disappear' but can be revealed by clicking on the just to the left. This suits me fine.What I was wondering was whether there was a registry tweak or similar that would make the inactive ones 'disappear' after a shorter period of inactivity.
could have a look here not sure if it does what you want click here
good morning could have a look here not sure if it does what you want though click here
sorry about the extra posts kept getting time out
Hi stalionUnfortunately click here toggles between hiding or not hiding but doesn't change the time period.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\windows\Current version\explorer\HideDesktopIconsTry setting a value in ther and see what happens.Of course no need to remind you to back up the registry first. :0)
Hi Fruit Bat /\0/As far as I can tell the keys in there correspond to whether the desktop cleanup wizard runs every 60 days or not.It is only the 'disappearing time' for the icons in the Notification Area that I want to change.I have a feeling that this cannot be done - I've found this question asked elsewhere but not answered. I'll leave it open for a while longer just in case...
This may not be what you are after so you may already know that you can manually set individual icons to 'Always hide' via Customize in the 'Hide inactive icons' area of the Taskbar Properties.
Thanks Eric10 but that is not what I want to do.As an example, when I start up my anti-virus icon appears in the Notification Area. This is handy because it reassures me that my AV is working. But I don't want it to be displayed for very long.
