Is there some sort of registry tweak etc i can apply that will automatically hide all icons in the task bar. For example so i don't have to set them all manually to always hide.

Also does anyone know how i can get rid of the wmp right click context menu entries?

----------------------------------------

I have been adding some entries to my right click context menu entires, i now have "Defrag with Contig" when i right click hard disk drives and folders which defragments the selected drives and or folders.

I have also successfully added Autoruns and Process Explorer and attempted to add Regshot and Uninstall Tool. My problem is that Autoruns and Process Explorer help files also launch but the Uninstall Tool's help file does not. If i go to C:Windows which is were i have placed all the mentioned apps and run Uninstall Tool then run the help files from it, it works. However the help file does not launch from uninstall tool if i launch Uninstall Tool from the context menu.

As for regshot it does not launch force stop.

These are the rgistry entires i am using.

Not quite but thanks for the reply any way, under "Customize notifications" you can set each task bar icon to either "Always Show", "Always Hide" and "Hide when inactive". What i want to do is set all the icons to automatically "Always Hide".

Disable System Tray from Showing Icons
[HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoTrayItemsDisplay"=dword:00000001
That's taken from UARegistryTweakageDOTNET0.4.1.
Don't know if it helps

Good luck

There's no way to set default to "always hide" as far as I know, but you can set not to show any icons at all...
