    SOLVED hide system tray arrow icon


    hi there, I look for a method to hide the arrow icon of system tray, which opens the list of all icons. I have several customization tools like winaero and 7+ taskbar tweaker but none of it helps. the mentioned arrow is pointed on this pic

    please any ideas ? any info much appreciated

    You can turn that off in settings.

    Settings - Personalisation - Taskbar - Select which icons appear on the taskbar - tick On.

    hi, @swarfega, thanks for your reply, unfortunatelly there is no such option, I cant disable or auto-hide arrow icon in "select which icons" . the one pointed on the pic, not clock or battery

    Show all would definitely get rid of the "up arrow"...then all of those icons that were in overflow will show up on the Task Bar.

    Pick your poison.

    hello friends, thank you all for your contribution. all your answers have pointed out the traditional algorhythm of how to get where I want. I bet the topic is solved thus.

    hi guys, Im just hit with the idea. what do you think if I can change the particular ICON of the arrow, I mean the picture itself, to just a BLANC ico ??? so I just need to find where this original arrow icon is stored and replace it . what do you think ?
