Anyone know how to hide the systray (other than shrinking the task bar)?

Re: systray

Well.... With 9x, ME NT 4 and 2000, you can set the taskbar to Auto-hide. But I haven't seen a way to simply hide the systray area.

On XP though, the Notify area is automatically set to hide icons that have not been accessed for a while.

Re: systray

What operating system are you using? If your systray is taking up your whole tool bar, you can install systrayx at:

I think that you have a trial period of thirty days and if you like it then you can pay $15.

XP has this feature as well, to configure this, right-click in the Win XP systray and choose Customize Notifications. Select an item and then pick from the three options in the drop-down list.
