    Notification Area in Win 7

    Hello all,

    I want to show all icons - including hidden ones (like Anti Virus and lan school) in the notification area. Ideally via a GPO or reghack.. anyone got an idea?

    Thanks

    There you go mate, im afraid there is no group policy setting for this. Best but is to build a profile with this change

    So go to regedit, change the value to 0 and export it to a registry file and your all done

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\E nableAutoTray

    If EnableAutoTray = 0 then all icons in the notification area (system tray) are visible. Otherwise some might be hidden.

    = 1 means is enabled which you don't want

    Just to add to the above - you can turn this registry change into a GPO option by making yourself a custom adm template. Instructions available here.

    It's worth deploying group policy preferences (unless they are built in like 7) as it makes reg changes like this very easy without having to create any adm/admx templates.
