    Smartboard tools minimised?

    I'm trying to find a way of loading the Smartboard 10 tools minimised into the tray, instead of having that stupid floating bar over the desktop icons, so that staff don't have to think about loading it to use the pens. Any ideas?

    Smart are considering re-jigging this for the next version apparently. We had a chat with them just after we rolled it out last term because we thought it was a really stupid place to put it. We want it to be able to be put anywhere on the desktop and to have the option to not have it up by default.

    Good to know, but did you find a workaround for the time being?

    @alan-d: I was afraid of that! It's a shame, there are some nice new features in it that we'd like to keep...

    There is no solution - apeo (also works here) was in contact all over the summer to Smartboard and the UK Rep to get a fix, but despite promises they now say it isn't available yet. Which meant we had a day to revert back to the old version.

    Basically they created it on a Mac and forgot to do the conversion for PC use.

    You can hide it but I'm not sure if it comes back on the next logon (right click and select hide).

    Hi Guys,


    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SMART Technologies\SMART Board Drivers\Floating Tools]
    "FloatingToolsVisible"=dword:00000000

    Keeps the freakn floating tools hidden by default
