I don't use the program so I did some searching with no luck on how to change that or even that you can.

This doesn't answer your question, but Core Temp and RealTemp show CPU temperatures in the taskbar if you'd like to try different programs.

SpeedFan tends to be annoying like that. For some reason on two of my computers, SF shows CPU temps just fine, but on my Phenom II gaming rig, it wont show CPU temp, just HDD so I got Core Temp and RealTemp as well. Great programs! Good suggestion GhostGT!

IIRC, Everest Home can show you any temp or anything (voltages and such) going on in your system in your taskbar and you can change the colors of the numbers so you know what is what. They haven't updated the free version for a really long time, but the old one still works like a charm.

It'll only display one reading.

But to change the reading it displays open SpeedFan 4.38.

Click 'Configure'

In the Configure window click on reading you want to display in task bar. I.E. GPU, HD0, HD1, Core, etc... Or what ever you have labeled the CPU reading.

At the bottom of the Configure window you see the option 'Show in tray'. Check the box and click OK.
