  1. How do you hide system tray icons? Now I have some programs that allow you to do this option (like Quicktime and Limewire - just for those applications), but I'm mainly talking about the programs taht dont have this option. Is there a program out there which can hide any system tray icons?

    Right click on the taskbar, and choose Properties. In the Properties window that appears, check the box next to "Hide Inactive Icons" if it isn't already checked, and then click the "Customise..." button.

    That will bring up a window that allows you to choose one of three behaviours for each programme icon that appears in the system tray: "Hide when inactive," "Always hide," or "always show."

    Regards Howard :)
