    It reminds me of some really old taskbar. They don't do anything but move from one side to the other.

    Tried all of those. It just keeps coming back after a few minutes.

    Guess we'll just have to wait for the next build and hope it gets resolved.

    If you have more than seven icons in the taskbar notification area, it will disrupt the layout of the notification area and show white scroll bars with arrows. Turning off the “always show all icons in the notification area” setting helps fix this for now as long as you do not set to show 7 or more icons.

    I have 5, so there must be something else also.


    Edit: Soon as I made this post, they went away again for no apparent reason. I'm sure they'll be back in 5.
    Edit: Nope, finished the post and there they are again. Not even 5.

    As a test, reduce to 4 to see if that makes a difference for you. Sometimes you may have to click on the white scroll bars to apply the change to make them go away.

    Still there with 4, and instead of showing one or the other, it shows both all the time. Even took it down to 0, and then that really messed things up.

    I'll just chalk it up to a bug that I cannot fix right now and live with it until the next release.

    Yeah, hopefully it'll be fixed in the next build release.
