Re: Any way to just show icons in the taskbar?
yeah, if some of your programs have tray icons then you can go to the options in that program and select "remove taskbar icon when minimized" option. When you minimize the program it will disappear from the taskbar and just be in the system tray. or if that isn't an option, you can always auto-hide the taskbar so you don't have to see it all the time.....lol
When all else fails...Ham Radio!
