Can I move a System Tray program to the Taskbar?

Q: Can I move a System Tray program to the Taskbar?

What I'd like is for a program that normally appears in the system tray to show in the taskbar at all times it is running so i can easily see it and use the exit functions etc.
Specifically for Steam - (X) minimizes to system tray and hides activity in the task bar. I don't mind if this results in 2 icons showing (1 for an active window and 1 for the process) I know you can do the same from system tray for this particular program, but I just don't have the habit to look there for anything other than system background applications.

I'm running Windows 7 Professional x64 and am comfortable tinkering with registry and system files if needed.

So the questions are:
1/ Can a system tray icon be permanently moved to the taskbar applications area?
2/ If not, can a background process be assigned a taskbar icon when active?
Thanks in advance,
Eric

Preferred Solution: Can I move a System Tray program to the Taskbar?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey Guys,

I'm not too sure if this may be possible. I've done a bit of "googling" but the key words always bring up "how to move the taskbar" but that is not what I want....

Basically my monitor has developed a small leak down on the bottom right, nothing major, it can wait until I've saved up to get a nice new one. For now though I can't see my tray notification and more importantly the clock. Is there anyway to move the sytem tray (including the clock) further towards thw middle so that I can see it?

XP has been around for years so I would have thought someone would have come up with a way!

Thanks
 

A:Move the system tray NOT the taskbar

It's built into the program to always be on the right of the taskbar when horizontal (top or bottom) and the bottom of the taskbar when vertical (left or right side).

Hi, I'm looking for some way to move icon of any app currently working from the taskbar to tray, like for example Skype (with the new version from Windows Store that feature has been removed) or some other programs that just run in the background doing their thing and I don't need to see their icons but I want to keep them on my screen. All the programs I've found so far work in the same way, they put the app in the tray when I minimize it but I want to keep it visible on my screen yet not on my taskbar - is that possible?

I've seen a very recent change in behavior in one of my programs in the taskbar. Firefox is no longer creating a window on itself but instead creates a new taskbar icon at the end of the list when I click it. Also, I cannot relocate the new icon by clicking and dragging until I pin it to the taskbar. I have two separate FF icons instead of one icon with multiple windows or shadows or whatever they're called. Hope that makes sense. When I click the original icon, an additional window or shadow icon is added to the 2nd one.

I've tried to pin the new icon to the taskbar and delete the old one, but when I close out FF, the icon disappears from the taskbar.

Hi...just recently when i started my computer up..and after windows loaded...there was just my background...all my icons & task bar & system tray were gone. The only way i could turn my computer off was manually....than i waited a bit..and when i started it again..windows did a disk check..than when it loaded again..all my icons & other stuff were back. But when i restart it or turn it off & than turn it on next day...its same thing again..just a background...so it looks like the only way my icons come back is when windows does a disk check.

This is one of those things that could be worded in so many ways, there may be a solution out there but I have no idea what phrasing may have been used in such a case. Basically, I recently switched to using a vertical taskbar on the left side, more workable area on widescreen monitors. I love it so far, except for the change in system tray behavior. They're doubled up, which is fine, but if I have an odd number of icons it disturbs my general arrangement. This is hugely annoying for me as I frequently use the system tray to open multiple applications I always have open in the background, such as IRC or AIM. Easiest to explain using animage.

Is it possible to have the tray like it is in the second one? Or if there is a way to have a single line of icons, that is also an acceptable solution.

Bear with my details, as I fear this is not a common problem- I can't find it on Google. I have been recently (not sure what caused it) having troubles with the taskbar and system tray in windows XP Pro. Some time after a fresh reboot (seems not to occur directly after a reboot), my windows on the taskbar don't respond correctly to my mouse clicks. That is to say that for instance right now, if I click on a different internet explorer window (on the taskbar), that window doesn't come up in front of this window as in normally would. Instead the taskbar section of that window changes from its regular blue colour to the dark orange colour as it would if something in that window had changed in the background (for example when you get a message on a MSN messenger window that is running in the background).
Alt-tabbing brings up the window no problems and if I click the desired 'task' 3 times it comes up -(once to turn colour, twice to minimize it, and the third time it pops up in the foreground). This is quite ANNOYING.

The second issue is with the system tray. Often times, (with any application it seeems) when I right-click the sys. tray icon the resulting menu stays there even after I click off of it- in the background or in other applications. The only way to get rid of it is to select one of the menu options. This is also very annoying.

I doubt it is any virus or spyware, as I stay updated with those software.

This is actually for a friend and I tried everything I could think of but nothing works. She recently installed WindowBlinds and as she was installing Avast it apparently happened (if this helps)

What happened is the icons in the System Tray, and the Quick Launch icons because the Start menu, and even the icons inside the Start menu have enlarged. They are probably 1.5x the size of the original and are also blurry. The time in the bottom right now includes the date also.

I thought her taskbar was moved up a notch, but it's as low as it can go. So thats not the problem. If you right-click the taskbar when it is unlocked and go to View, you can change the icons from large to small. It's on small. So something else happened.

I have an existing DOS program that I would like to appear in the system tray on boot up. Is there a way to have it load into the system tray, or does the program itself have to be programmed to appear there?

I have seen several freeware programs that will place my program into the system tray, but only within the freeware itself. I don't seem to be able to have it boot up and running my program automatically. In those programs it seems you have to click on it to get it running. When I exit the program, it removes it from the freeware - and then it is no longer in there on the next boot up.

What I want is for the program to run when the computer is booted - and then I would have the option to let it continue running or I can exit it, if I choose to not let it run. And then next boot up, repeat the process.

Icons in my system tray keep unhiding themselves, usually on restart / log off (I am certain that I am doing it right) is there a program that will give me better systray control so that these icons will stay put? Also some icons which I want to see keep hiding themselves but that's not really a big problem.
 

A:Better System Tray Control Program?

When you say unhiding themselves do you mean that you right click on them and click "close" or "exit" or whatever and they're gone. Then on a system restart they're back again?
If you do mean the above, then you need to do the following:
-Click on "Start"
-Click on "Run"
-then in the "open" box type msconfig and press enter
-Then in the msconfig box click on the startup tab
-All the checked items in this list are what starts when your PC starts and hence the reason for your system tray icons.
-So basically untick the boxes next to anything you don't want to start when your PC starts.
NOTE: Leave anything you are unsure about ticked and post back with them and i'll tell you whether you should untick them or not.

Sorry if i got the wrong end of the stick.

I've tried doing it this way (logged in as an admin user) but when another using logs in, the setting does not apply do them and the notification is still present.

Is there another way to do this, so the change has a system wide effect?

OS is Windows 8
If it helps, the program I want to do this for is Input Director (very handy tool, but I don't want students to be able to simply close it from the system tray).

Thanks.

Kerbal Space Program 1.0 is a Unity application.

It cannot be minimized to the system tray (remains in taskbar after being minimized normally) or hidden by any application.

I went ahead and tested about 15 different programs. These include Iconize, RBTray, 4tray, MagicBossKey, WindowHider, PanicButton...

Every single other application and window I have operate correctly with these programs, including both recent or old programs.

KSP 1.0 is just special however, and refuses to go to the system tray or be hidden under any circumstances.

Any idea why this might be? Is there anything I can do?
 

A:Solved: Kerbal Space program, cannot be minimized to system tray or hidden

Welcome to TSG!

First, don't play at work and you won't need to hide it.
Seriously though, why do you need to hide it?
Are you trying to hide the whole game or the HUD?
You can hide the whole task bar if that will get around your boss or whoever.

Did some reading and seems there are several bugs out there for the newer 1.0 version.
There is a chance that someone just forgot to program that feature. Once the game takes focus it just won't let go.

I don't know programming but for those that do, the wiki page says;
Kerbal Space Program is written in C# and uses the Unity engine.Click to expand...

if that will help with a specific program.

After all this research I may actually look into playing this one, looks neat. Lots of bugs to consider though.
Hope you find a sneaky solution, Happy gaming!

I am havig some system tray icon problems after installing anti-virus and spyware software. Looking for a fix for the disappearing system tray icons at initial start-up. Quick fix--log off and on again--icons reappear where they should. I am told that this disappearing activity is due to a Windows XP "BUG". What a problem! Any ideas for a secure, lasting fix out there? After the spyware and antivirus software installation, the computer star-up time is now really SLOW too. The software launches seems to be in conflict with each other, or something. Have emachine--T3406, Windows XP Home 2002, Service Pack 2. 1.23 GB RAM.

Thanks, ComputerMaven

Hello Guys,

Got around to installing Windows 7 on my home desktop and laptop. Am rather impressed with everything compared to Vista (speed, etc) but have one big annoyance - the taskbar.

I have my taskbar set to traditional mode where each window gets its own taskbar item (ie if I have 4 Firefox windows open, I have 4 Firefox taskbar items show up). I also don't use the Pin functionality as I dislike it.

In <=Vista, every time a new window opened, it would open to the right of the taskbar. In 7, it likes to group applications of the same type (Firefox for example) together. Any way I can get it to revert to how <=Vista did it?

I also have the same problem with system tray icons.

Best Regards,
Craig Brass

Hi Welcome to SF,

You could try this,

Right Click on Task Bar > Properties > Task-bar Buttons > From the Drop Down select Never Combine

Hope this helps

I'm using small icons and never combine and also 7 taskbar tweaker not to group tasks. I was wondering if there was a way to get rid of the space between tasks, like between one folder and another. Which is technically what grouping does I guess. But I still wanted to move individual things around and keep a certain order.

I also wanted to ask about reducing the spacing between icons in the system tray also. It uses two or three times the space as the tray from vista or any previous versions do. I know you can hide ones you don't use much and other options. But I wanted to leave it showing them all but just have them right next to eachother instead of spaces between.

(At this rate I'm going to have a thread starting record.)

A:Spacing between taskbar items and also system tray spacing

No. There's no practical advantage to doing so (especially in non-combine modes) because you wouldn't actually save enough space to include an additional icon so it's not an option. I never used Vista so I don't know but I suspect that the spacing was not that much different.

And, no (I'm only 99% certain about this one though so I may be contradicted). If it takes up more space (and I'm not even sure that that's not just an optical delusion) it's because of the size of the icons. Although it may appear spaced out there is only minimal space between the icons taking into account the full size of the transparent parts.

Hey,

I'm having a bizarre problem with Vista Home 32 bit which suddenly appeared overnight. I put my notebook to sleep the day before, and when I powered it back on this morning, it was on the black & white boot up menu saying the notebook and crashed and had to restart.

I opted to boot windows normally but it kept restarting. Same problem with safe mode.

I tried to repair the installation with the installation disc but that didn't work.

Got to System Restore, tried to restore a previous point, but that failed.

I rebooted again, and miraculously it booted up to the desktop. But I've noticed a few major problems:

1. The program folder in the start menu is empty

2. The system tray has missing icons, most notably network connections

3. A few directories in C:\ are missing . Am sure I didn't delete them.

4. Many applications like MS Office or Adobe Acrobat are missing / have broken links and therefore do not work.

I have 2 user accounts on the notebook and both have similar problems.

When I boot up in Safe Mode, the program folder has a few applications listed, but the other problems remain.

System Restore doesn't work. It returns an error message saying a file's missing or something like that.

I feel something's corrupted but I don't even know how to begin searching for a solution to the problem since the symptoms are all over the place!

Would appreciate any help!

Can you help, when I had my new PC set up for me, I wanted to duplicate some desktop icons to the tray, but when he tried, they wouldn't stay, & he said it was the way the supplier had set it up in the workshop, curious, because it was possible with my laptop.
 

A:Move desktop icons to tray

Right-click on the tray (taskbar) and deselect "Lock the Taskbar". When finished with that, right-click on the icon in question and drag it to the tasbar.

I'm running Windows 98 and recently upgraded my PC and re-installed the software.

Since then I have noticed that when I connect to my ISP it takes about 3 minutes to transfer the handshake Icon to my Desktop Taskbar tray.

The connectivity is not affected as ICQ boots up well before the transfer occurs.

Someone told me I'd have to reload my software, but I don't want to crack walnuts with a sledge hammer.

Soooooooooooooo, I have designated these as different even though they both go at the bottom of the screen.
The ones on the left seem to be known as icons in the "Taskbar" but the ones on the right when installed usually say they they can be put in the "Tray". What makes them different (at least on my both my Vista and 7 OS's) is that the ones on the left, in the Taskbar, are large and the ones on the right, in the Tray, are small.
Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo,
Is there anyway to make them all the same uniform pixel size?

(I dun't care about Vista anymore, Lucy)

thanks for the help.

A:Taskbar / Task Tray icons

If using small icons is ok with you, you can set that in taskbar properties.
Then they should all be the same size - small icons.
Right click on the Taskbar and click Properties.

Taskbar - Use Small or Large Icons

If you want large icons in the Notification Area I don't think you can do that.
Here is an old SF Thread about this:
Notification area icons and date/time font sizes

If you're adventurous you can play with customizations and see if you can find something you prefer:

It seems my problem seems very small in comparison to all the recent worm problems (caught the bug, fixed it), but I have a little bug in the system that gets annoying.

I'm running Windows XP professional, and when I minimze a window, it's icon goes to the system tray instead of to the taskbar. If I click the program's name in the taskbar, it will go to the taskbar, but if I click the little underscore button in the top right of the window, it goes to the tray. Please tell me what's wrong. Thank you.

Hello,

I received a new computer for Christmas. I don't know what I did, but the blue taskbar that "used to be" on the bottom moved to the right side of the screen with "Start" at the top and the time is on the right where it used to be, but it's kinda squished now.

I called a friend and she told me just to drag it to the bottom. Well, it won't drag. I was told to click to make sure Lock Taskbar was unchecked (it was) and a couple of other things, but it still won't go down to the bottom where it was.

The only thing dragging did was to move the Taskbar to the left side of the screen (even though I was dragging to the bottom), but the Start Button is still at the topmost right side of the screen. The clock area is still at the bottom right, where it was.

I don't know what else to do. It just will not move to the bottom where it was and my "helper" is very frustrated with me. I do exactly what she says, but it doesn't work.

What am I doing wrong?

Taskbar Notification Tray - "RollerStoller NORAD" operations[Control Panel --> Notifications --> Show Icons and Notifications]  Almost any program or utility that can place an icon into this tray, I welcome and allow same to do so.  I want any/all such icons to be visible at all times, from boot to shutdown.  Reasons:  I want my "RollerStoller NORAD" to inform me, directly or indirectly, of anything becoming amiss or already amiss.  When any particular icon or icons "go missing" a few times, I begin to check out the Windows innards and attempt to find out the cause[s], and apply appropriate solution[s].  Also newly-installed, welcomed, things appear -- letting me know such are ready for action.  Having between 21-27 icons in that try can sometimes lead to icon-lathergy on my part, however, I try to eye-ball the group daily, and hopefully become alert to any missing-in-action icon[s] -- 'cause sometimes that means a particular program or utility is not working completely.  This "NORAD" has come in handy numerous times, alerting me of this, that, the other.
