    I have lost access to the system tray (10130 Update channel)


    I have two computers running "fbl_impressive 10130 Professional" in dual-boot configuration. One was upgraded from 10174 via the ISO. The other; "fbl_impressive 10130 Professional (Slow Ring over 10122)."

    The problem is present on both. I want to change the old "always show, show when active, always hide" attributes for the several NA Icons (System Tray or Systray)

    Even Godmode has changed. I had a collection of links to change these Icons in Quick Launch. They no longer work.

    TIA. MSAnswers didn't seem to have any reports of this. Maybe I'm just plain nuts!

    Links break during upgrades. You often have to recreate them.

    The link is no longer in the popup, you have to right click on the taskbar, and go to properties, then click the "Customize" button under "Notification area".

    Please read my question again.


    Based on my question, do you really think I hadn't tried your suggestions?

    I'm not trying to be rude, but I'm familiar with your suggestions. I would prefer some more expert help if it's available.

    Notice no tab for 'Notification Area'?
    It got moved to "Settings" via the 'Customize' button.

    Only it's not there.

    Not here either. I had hoped my clue about "Godmode" would have tipped my level of experience.
    Again if someone can help me find the location, I offer my gratitude in advance.

    Given your hubris... i'm disinclined to help, but did you bother clicking the "Select which icons appear on the taskbar" link?

    For me, it allows me to choose which icons appear in the popup, vs in the taskbar. However, you can accomplish the same thing just by dragging them out of the popup onto the taskbar. Or vice versa. There does not appear to be a way to hide them, from what I can see.. I imagine that may be coming in a later build.

    Hubris is a two way street. Your suggestion answers my question. Thank you.

    As an old, old timer I translate 'taskbar' as 'taskbar' and "Notification Area and
    System Tray (or Systray) as themselves.

    I chose to offer my thanks despite your disinclination.

    Just a side note. The SETTINGS area only offers ON/OFF. No control for conditional settings. Oh well! They can't get [WIN]+M right.

    You're welcome, but in the future you might be less obnoxious about claiming someone doesn't know what they're talking about. That jab about preferring more expert help was pretty condescending, especially since it turned out you were wrong.

    But, regardless, as I said it only allows the two states, but to probably expect hiding in a later build.

    Not sure what you mean about the Win+M, as that works fine for me, minimizing all apps.

    It's + D now.

    Many applications themselves have options to turn off systray icons.

    Here's your OA

    The lack of a solution led to my "obnoxious" response. I quoted you to show the apparent lack of the answer you took credit for. The links were from Godmode pre-10130. The links are NOT in Godmode 10130 and can't be recreated.

    Pull out your XP manuals, WIN+M minimized the Active (focus) window. Pass this on to Edwin who thinks [WIN]+D answers my [WIN]+M observation.

    All windows are active in Windows 10; you can type in one window and scroll a document in another simultaneously; focus is different.
    Win+D minimizes all windows, Win+D again brings them all back.
