    Hidden icons on the taskbar....how to eliminate it...???


    I get that they feel the need to put new stuff in... but this just annoys the crap right outta me. I'm opening programs, and no freakin icon is appearing in my task bar.

    Please oh please tell me there's a way to eliminate this latest annoyance....

    Tanks...

    Have you checked to see if you pulled the taskbar slider too far over or down?

    For those interested in hiding the Search and taskview icons in the taskbar, try the app made by vali20 over at MDL forum

    Hehehe, freakin excellent. I found this morning that the aforementioned app was responsible for my disappearing icons. I can replicate the issue, so it seems to be solved.

    You man this app's causing you other annoyances? Must be some TP bug, I have it installed and working without issues.

    That is exactly what I mean, and I can replicate it. Before I run the hider app, I will open a dozen or so programs. As I open more, their size begins to shrink, as I cram more into the available space. Then, I click on the hider, and the icons begin to stretch wider and slide under the notification area at the bottom right hand side.

    Of course, I should perhaps point out that I do not use the "7" style taskbar.(yuk).
    I unpin everything, and re-add the quick launch tool bar, effectively replacing the "7" style taskbar with that of "XP".

    And of course that may or may not have some effect...
