    Windows 10 tray icons hide automatically, how do I disable?

    Hello guys

    eversince Windows XP icons in the tray bar automatically hide when unused. Since I believe Windows Vista there was the option to make those tray icons visible so they didn't hide even when they were not used. I cannot seem to find this option in Windows 10, does anyone know how I make sure the tray icons won't hide?

    I want the icons in the big square to just be next to the others on the taskbar Click image for larger version.

    In Windows 7 and 8/8.1 (and maybe also XP and Vista I don't remember) I know you could just right-click the arrow and mark a checkbox but there is no such thing in Windows 10.

    thanks in advance
