• Hiding taskbar icons?

    • This topic has 4 replies, 3 voices, and was last updated 1 year ago.

    I’m embarrassed to ask this, but I can’t remember how to hide certain taskbar items in the pop-up corner. For example, how do I take this icon, (green arrow), and move it into the pop-up? (Red circle.)

    I looked at my Taskbar settings, but I can’t find that option.

      Don’t be embarrassed we all have them at some point or other 🙂
      Right click taskbar > Taskbar Settings > Scroll to notification area:
      choose each respectively and you’ll get the desired result.


      OOPS…that’s for Windows 10 (now I’m emarrassed lol)

      No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created IT- AE

      Thanks. But I don’t see that menu item. I’m in “Taskbar settings.” But nothing called “notifications.”


      Edit: Yup Win 11.

      You can’t do that with built-in functions on any version of Windows.*

      But you can by using one of several third-party programs:

      (* Unless the particular program includes that option.)

      Thanks B. That’s what I was starting to figure out. It’s not a big deal, so I’ll just leave it alone.

      Thanks all.
