Icons near the clock in XP (Task Bar?)

  bta1 17:12 05 Dec 2003

I want to add a programme to the bunch of icons near the clock so i can launh it faster (I think its called the task bar).
Also it would be quite handy if it could run automatically when i start up. I know you can do this with programme manager but i can't find this.

click here to start a program automatically.

Icons in the Notification Area are put there by the programs - you cant "force" them to go there unless they have a built-in option to do this.

I think what you want is the 'quicklaunch' toolbar, it lives at the opposite end to the clock on the taskbar. To activate it right click on an empty spece on the taskbar and select toolbars, then check 'quick launch', you can drag n' drop programs in here from your desktop. HTH TR
