    "Hide icon and notification" option for non-Modern programs?


    Hey guys,

    I remember the feature on Windows 7 where you could choose "Hide icon and notifications" which would, well, hide both the icons and notifications.

    I know you can easily hide the icon for non-Modern/Metro programs by just dragging it to the area inside the ^ icon. I've done that for Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, but yet if it blocks something I still get a nagging notification saying it did so.

    For the time being, I've just turned notifications off inside of MBAM as it gives that option... but not every program lets you do that. A lot just force the notifications on you. When I look in Settings, it says "no apps have requested notifications yet" because I assume that only applies to Metro/Modern apps. Other programs sort-of have their own way of doing it.

    Or WILL they for sure show up in Settings if they use the "normal" Windows notification method? MBAM does its notifications differently from most, but I remember that in Windows 7 I COULD get rid of them just by choosing "hide icon and notifications" from the Windows options.

    Hi, it took me a while to understand quite what you were referring to.. I think the same functionality is there, just rather oddly available between a mix of rt click on the taskbar and part of Settings, as shown:
