Close taskbar but have systray showing

Q: Close taskbar but have systray showing

Does anyone know if there is a way to close the taskbar but still have the system tray showing? Or to move the system tray on it's own.

The reason I want to do this is because I use Vista64 with Nextstart and for some reason I lose the system tray

Any help would be appreciated

Preferred Solution: Close taskbar but have systray showing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Close taskbar but have systray showing

Hello Belveder,

Sorry, but the notification area systray is a part of the taskbar and cannot be separated.

You might contact Nextstart support to see what they may say about this issue to see if they know of or make a solution to this for you hopefully.

Hello.
I have a little problem with Windows 8 working on my Soni VAIO VPCEB1S1E/BJ ! Almost always when I closing and a running program from the traybar (system tray) with right click > Close,,,, all the window frames on my screen are starting to blink for about 5 seconds, until it stops by itself and while it's blinking i can not really use anything, like if i press on one of the minimized windows it will kinda like try to maximize, but it won't eventually.
It's extremely annoying pleas help me find a workaround.
I should say that: I tried to re-install the Windows, but it's still the same, I have the latest AMD graphic card driver clean installed right after a clean re-installation of the Windows 8!
Thanks
Have a great day

I imagine you have tried this. But I'll mention it any how.
Go to:

you will see a clickable "restore default icon behaviors" click it and check the results.

Hi All.

When I mouse over items in the taskbar and system tray, a readable popup usually appears. Occasionally, the popup is hidden behind the items and it is necessary to reboot to fix this.

I have hunted around but cannot find a setting to keep these popups on top. Any clues??

Occasionally I want to switch between different keyboard languages (english/german/russian).

Therefore I used in the past the keyboard change indicator menu in Taskbar/Systray.

However recently this indicator disappeared.

How can I Win8 tell to re-show it again?

If possible I would prefer to have a registry key + value so that I can create a *.reg script
which does the job simply by double clicking.

Thank you

I'm looking for a utility that can show me my total memory usage on the taskbar or systray. It should show the % or a graph.

For example, I have 4 GB physical RAM and my Task Manager is showing:
Physical Memory: Total = 4006, Available = 1000
System Commit: 3684/8004

I found some memory monitors, but they show my memory usage as 75%, which is the physical memory, not the total, which would be 46% . I've tried:

SysTryMeter SysTrayMeter - Download
Taskbar Monitor win7-taskbar-mon - A very simple performance monitor that gives at-a-glance system performance info. - Google Project Hosting
RAM CPU Taskbar RAM CPU Taskbar v2 by ~anonymous-thing on deviantART
(this one doesn't work for me because I disabled Aero)

A:total (physical+virtual) memory usage monitor for taskbar/systray

I do not think that the page file (virtual memory) is utilized the same way as your RAM is (physical memory). I don't know why you're looking for a utility that gives you a combined statistic, but this utility says it displays CPU, RAM, and page file usage:

Years back when I first discovered the virtual memory setting whilst playing about in the Windows settings, I thought I'd stumbled upon some hidden jewel. I don't know how high I set it lol, but now, despita having read that some programs may actually require a page file, I always disable it.

When I hover over the icons that are loaded into the system tray after startup, the information dialog box, that describes what the icon is, is hiding behind the start menu taskbar.

Such a simple problem. It's driving me nuts!

I attached a small screenshot of exactly what I mean. That dialog box in particular is a bit large so you can see most of the information but there is still information hiding behind the taskbar.

Why is it doing this? I have a brand new HP laptop wiped and imaged with XP Pro. I tried changing visual properties, taskbar properties, etc.

I tried restarting.

How can I fix this?!?

I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.

Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.

Here's what I mean in graphic form:



It's bugging me to no end. Anyone else had this problem/resolved it?

A:Toolbar on taskbar should only be showing an arrow but is showing icon

Hello thewonkits, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I notice this happens when using small icons for a toolbar. If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, right click on the dotted separator line to the left of the two top far left toolbars (one at a time) click on View and Large Icons, then lock the taskbar to see if that may look ok to you. It will make the top row a bit bigger though.

Hopefully someone may know a better way to hide that bit of icon poking out when locked.

Added to the unnervingly long list of keystroke actions that are more work in Win7 than in WinXP is the ability to close a window from the taskbar in just 2 steps. In WinXP this was easy and quick with a right-click and C (for close). In Win7 -- at least with Classic Shell installed -- it needs an ENTER after the C... even though there's no other 'C' option in the context menu. Argh. Anyone know of a fix for this?

Is there some way to disable pop up taskbar? I checked taskbar settings but it's not there, it should be somewhere in metro settings.

I have a problem when closing windows or apps by right-clicking to close from the taskbar. At times I have to repeat the right-click-close action 3 or 4 times for it work while other times the close menu doesnt even appear. I can close with no problem by using the close button at the top corner. What could be causing this odd behaviour?

Hi,
I'm trying to remove the 'Close Window' option in the taskbar. Here is an example.
For many times I have accidentally close the window using this method and lost hours of work. I did some search on the web but all I found were related to software development. What I'm looking for, is to remove this option from Windows 7 or stop that menu from showing up if I click and drag the mouse up.

Thank you for assisting me.

I'm not sure if there's any way to do it but i'll ask anyways.
I use both yahoo and live for messaging. When Live is connected it stays open in the taskbar even when the window is closed which makes it easy to navigate and change status since i keep it pinned to the taskbar. Is there a way to do so with Yahoo? With the new yahoo there's a dot on the icon to show your status if you're online or away etc... It'd be nice if i could make Yahoo function the same way as Live does when I'm logged in. So my main question is, is there any way to close Yahoo to the taskbar rather than the system tray?

Hello PRATIK, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if after using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below, that your Jump Lists will return.

Jump Lists - Reset and Clear All Items


Since you are using CCleaner, double check that you have the Taskbar Jump Lists item under Windows Explorer unchecked. This will delete your current Jump Lists when used, and may be why you do not see any available.

Hi darksteel88

Thank you for your patience. I will be helping you deal with the issues raised in your log from this point onwards

Before we start jumping into things, here is a quick basic note which I mention to everyone. The fix which I have provided for you is for this computer only, it should not be used on any other computer. Each fix is tailor made for the specific task in hand. If for some reason you have system restore disabled, then please re-enable it before proceeding, an infected restore is better than none. Please read through the fix first and set enough time aside to complete the task in one session. If there is anything you feel needs clarification then please ask - do not guess! Thanks.

If this is a computer from a work place then please advise your IT department of the concerning issues before commencing past this point.

Please follow these directions in the order they are set out for you.

We will begin with ComboFix.exe. Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/comb...o-use-combofix


Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

Once installed, you should see a blue screen prompt that says:

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

Please continue as follows:Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.
When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

Please include the following reports for further review, and so we may continue cleansing the system:

Hello Yihwan,

It looks like you need to unlock your taskbar, drag the dotted lines separator just to the left of the blue circle icon (far right one) over to the left to decompress the other icons until the arrows to the right of the Chrome icon go away. After you get the icons dragged into the position you want, you can lock the taskbar again.

Hope this helps,

I've been using Windows Seven and Microsoft Security Essentials since November and have been fairly happy with it. But today is the second time now that I've started my computer and the Icon for MSE is not appearing on the system tray on the task bar. If I go and click it on the desk top and run the program it says the real time protection is enabled and it looks like everything else is fine, but I guess I'm just a little paranoid that it's not appearing on the system tray. The strange thing, I'll restart the computer, and then its there upon start up on the second time. I checked the thing in the task bar properties where it says "show notifications" and that such and it doesn't look like its been changed or anything. Just thought that it was kind of odd that it'll work if I restart it on the second time.

A:MSE not showing up on taskbar first time

The real test to see whether MSE is protecting you, despite the missing icon, is if the services are running.

MsMpEng.exe is the security engine, used by Windows Defender and MSE.

msseces.exe is MSE itself.

But in normal mode,icons,taskbars were gone,but mouse cursors and background

The program that i am using is Zbrush 4R7, and the windows 10 taskbar shows when the program is maximized, which it is very annoying, and because of that, many options of Zbrush that is at the bottom becomes unaccesible unless I go in windowed mode.
So, is there a way to fix this issue with windows 10, because I was a windows 7 user and everything works fine, except in windows 10. Thanks.

Hello,

First, thanks to all for all the previous help; appreciate it very much.

Re the bar on the bottom, which I guess is called the Taskbar:

Have several icons on it, which is fine.

But it won't accept any more new ones if I try to drag some onto it.

I right clicked on the bar and pulled up the Taskbar Tab under properties.
I have the Lock The Taskbar box un-checked, and have also selected
Never Combine next to the Taskbar Buttons: line.

Seems like it's still trying to pin the icons to others, and Not show them visually as completely separate icons in the bar.

What might I be doing wrong ?

BTW: also, any way of having the icon names Permanently displayed next to the icon on top or below the particular icon ?

Thanks,
Bob

Norton 360 icon runs double in my taskbar. It's the only program that does it. But also, my emails have been doubling in two of my web accounts. I have noticed it on my phone, and web. I've sought help, but no one seems to fix it. Really tired of the seeing double stuff. Could I have malware stuck somewhere? Is Conduit a culprit? My PC also likes to connect to an old network ID that has been deleted from my profiles. I had renamed the ID an my PC wants to keep that name. It's like it's mad at me or something. I have to manually reconnect to the new ID name. My PC is running Win7, and it's about 5 yrs old. My fan runs hot a lot though, and the computer shuts down sometimes. I really need help here. Hate having multiple problems. Had these issue for a few months now.

A:taskbar not showing after waking from screensaver?

As far as it goes, there is a known issue with letting your computer sit for a period of time, and when the screen wakes, the mouse being able to move but the computer being unresponsive for a minute or so.

Try waiting a couple minutes and see if the computer become responsive, if so, this may be the same issue.

Have you tried going to My Computer > Control Panel > Taskbar Properties. And uncheck "autohide" and checking "always on top."

If that doesn't work, then try moving the cursor to the bottom of the screen and right clicking. If you get a different menu click "properties" and then click "always on top," and uncheck "autohide."

So recently I've been using windows 7 a lot and every so often the task bar stops showing previews and starts showing tool tips and when I move the mouse off of the taskbar the icon remains highlighted as though my mouse were still over it the only way to fix it is to restart explorer.

anyone else ever have this issue and or know of a way to fix it?

Hi Flare561,
I think Windows Aero has to be enabled in order for the previews to show up. Are you turning it off perhaps? My VGA card did not qualify for Aero so I only see the words. Not the previews.

I recently converted to Windows 8(.1) from 7. When I had seven I'd play games in windowed (borderless) mode and tab out to my other monitor. It left behind a taskbar at the bottom overlaying the game I was previously on. I found this actually kinda helpful. Now in Windows 8 it only shows if I tab to a program on the same monitor as the game, and not if I tab to a program on my other monitor. Is there any way to change this?

I started up my computer logged into Windows and when I logged in the desktop was black and all I had was a mouse cursor. I opened task manager and I restarted "explorer.exe" but still nothing. I loaded up Google Chrome through the "Run New Task" option in the task manager to start looking up solutions. I've tried so many things, I've scanned for viruses and tried a few things I've seen on other posts.
For everyone else the solutions offered seemed to have worked but not for me.
One post suggested that it might be a virus that is inside windows files.

On windows 8.1, my taskbar, one day, suddenly stopped displaying the audio icon on the taskbar. When I right click it, go to the properties, and click customize, it doesn't show the audio icon as an option. When I click, "turn system icons on or off," I can see the audio icon, but it is locked to off. I don't know where to look from here.

A:[SOLVED] Not Showing Audio Icon On Taskbar

Method 1:
There is no option available in control panel volume settings to show volume icon like earlier operating system. In Windows 8 and 8.1 you can enable volume icon by modifying ?Turn system icons on or off? option.
Right click on or near time clock in notification area and select Properties.



Make sure Volume icon is set ?On? as shown below, if it were off, make it on to show volume icon.

If the above step hasn?t help, ?Restore default icon behaviors? which may bring back the missing icon.



This is the normal procedure to get back the volume icon. In case the Volume icon option ( on/off) grayed out and you can?t change it, then follow the method 2.

Method 2: If volume icon is missing and you can?t enable it from ?Turn system icons on or off? area, then that could be an issue with explorer process. The following two methods can solve the issue.
a) Kill the explorer.exe from Processes or Details tab under task manager. Find out all explorer.exe and kill them, make sure no explorer.exe is running in the task manager. After that, on the file menu select new process or Run (or new tasks), type ?explorer? and press OK. It will start the new explorer process. That should bring back the volume icon, if it hasn?t, redo the method 1

This method has brought back missing volume icon on my Windows 8.1 computer.
b) Registry modification- Its recommended to take a backup before modifying registry.
Open registry editor in Windows and find out;
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify

After modifying registry keys, you need to kill and restart the explorer.exe process to take effect.

It's rather full (2.2gb left from 74.4) but he's now deleting some files. Would you like a HijackThis report to ensure it's not a virus? Did a scan on McAfee and it's clean, checked CMOS/BIOS settings and it's not hot or overclocked. Any help'd be appreciated, if you need to know anything else about the computer ask away, it'd be great if you could help. :)

A:XP not showing explorer.exe taskbar, My Computer/My Documents

I had this problem before, and it was a virus. In fact, it was a trojan.
Every time I would reboot or start my computer it wouldn't show the desktop at all. So I would have to open task manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL),
close explorer.exe ,and run explorer.exe, which usually does the trick.

There's always system recover, that is, if you have the disk.
And if you're worried about your data I would suggest buying a storage device or blank CD's or Dvd-R's and saving them there. But only save valuable data, like irreplaceable things such as photos, and so on. Music can be downloaded later, and programs too. Take as many as screenshots too. But that's what I'd do.

I recently had to reinstall XP SP3.
I've swtiched everything to Classic view.
Now theres a section of my taskbar, to the immediate left of the system tray,
with a little icon and "Add Hardwar" and ">>".
When I click the ">>", up pop all the icon links to everything in Control Panel.
How do I remove all this?
Thanks!

I had to do a clean install on a new hard drive and since then have not been able to get my task bar balloons to show. For example, when using the Safely Remove Hardware icon, I don't get the Now Safe To Remove balloon. I only get a popping sound. When running a Mcafee virus scans, I can't view the scan progress when resting the cursor over the icon. I do get the identifying pop up and that is all. I've tried the log off and on tip but it didn't work. Can anyone help me?

Hi,

I suspect this is related to your malware problem you had here:

The windows security center service is turned off.

Which virus were you infected with? How did you re-enable Security Centre in that thread?

It's been couple of days since I upgraded my system to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Everything is working fine except this nasty error. If I pin apps to taskbar or run apps , the app icons on the taskbar are shown as white square. And I am seeing the same thing on Apps & Feature settings list. The icons are there but as the backgrounds are shown as grey-white chequered pattern (for the transparency ), it looks like white squares. Rebuilt the icon cache but to no avail. And on the start menu everything looks fine.

I'm a new windows 10 latptop owner, previously used windows 7 with the classic theme. In both win 7 aero and in win 10, I dislike how the use of alt-tab and hovering over taskbar icons shows a series of miniatures images of windows. This is a terrible user interface --- all my windows are dense with text and could be scrolled to any point, so they can't be identified from the image. What I need to see are window titles. Or in the case of alt-tab, icons. Win 10 does show the titles but not stacked vertically, making them difficult to scan by eye. Same with icons---they are tiny little things in a sea of useless image.

So can I change the win 10 theme to show a vertical stack of window titles when hovering over the taskbar, and to show icons when doing alt-tab switching?

I have a Lenovo T520 Laptop Running Win 10 Pro Verssion 1511 OS Build 10586.633. The problem I'm having is that in the status bar, the icon showing the internet connection has the good old yellow triangle and when I hover my cursor over the icon it says "NO INTERNET CONNECTION" yet if I click on my browser it goes right to the internet. I have no idea as to why this is happening. Can anyone help with this? Thanks.

Do you connect to the internet with an Ethernet cable or with WiFi?
Go to Start/Search and type ncpa.cpl and press enter. Which connection is saying No Internet Connection? the Local Area Connection or Wireless?

If I update the BIOS on my Intel motherboard to any one of the three most recent BIOS's, my add-in Intel network card (located in one of the pci slots) shows up as a removable device in the taskbar (Much like a USB device; for example a passport removable hard drive or flash drive). However, the motherboard's network controller does not exhibit this behavior.

Intel support is telling me that it can vary as to how the devices are detected by Windows and that this is normal. I have never ever seen a pci slot card being detected as a removable device in the 20 years that I have been using Windows, so I was wondering if what they are telling me is a valid statement? It seems kind of scary that this is happening.

System: Custom
Motherboard: Intel DP55KG
PCI Network Card: Intel Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter (82574L)

actually i dont know in which category i should post this threat. so i posted it in general category.

i have installed Windows 8 on my notebook few days back. I didnt paid much attention in the starting but now it gives me trouble when my battery status is not being shown on the notification area on the taskbar. Is there any solution?

A:Battery icon not showing up in taskbar notification area.

Yep, right click on the Taskbar, Properties, and you should see Notification area. Click on Customize... It brings up the Control Panel and you should see blue text saying Turn system icons on or off. Click that. You should see the battery icon and be able to change that to on.

This morning, my icons on the taskbar have suddenly turned into icons with names of open apps and tabs. I didn't change anything, but did recently have an update.

After installing a new theme, I noticed later on that all the icons on the taskbar, explorer, and the desktop were missing. The programs all work fine, with the title showing, but explorer is very laggy and it's incredibly hard to navigate through my picture folder without thumbnails.

And for some reason, I cannot open the start menu from the taskbar.

I tried multiple system restores, and that did not fix the problem.

Thanks for answering, it's very much appreciated.

A:All icons on explorer, taskbar, and desktop are not showing anymore.

Hello and welcome,

You've done multiple system restores and get the same theme? Or what happens?

Click on start, and on the search bar type in cmd, once it appears right-click it and select run as administrator, upon the prompt type in sfc /scannow, it will request to scan on restart, do so.

Give an update please.
