    System Tray

    Is there any way of hiding all the system tray icons EXCEPT for the Volume Mixer and the Network Connections?

    We have a LOT of icons there, and I want to lose them all except for those, as they are used often and are important.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Nope, I tried this a while ago. In the end I added a short cut to the volume mixer on the desktop and disabled the whole shebang!

    We have a shortcut to the volume mixer in the Start Menu.

    @GRitchie: Is there any reason that you couldn't use a shortcut instead? [At least for the volume mixer?]

    That's how I currently have it, but the other members of my department aren't too keen on this idea...! :-/

    Could try this, would need to send a registry adjustment as well for it to work on the desktops.

    Any other ideas?
