Re: Showing items in the system tray


David Bailes
 

Hi Jim,
in windows 7, 8, and 8.1, if one of the items on the taskbar is the focus, then if you press alt+enter, a properties dialog opens, and on the taskbar page, there's a notification area customize button.
You can use any of the items on the taskbar: the start button, the taskbar buttons, or the icons in the notification area(system tray).
In Windows 7, you can move the focus to the start button by pressing windows key, then escape. But this doesn't work in windows 8 or 8.1.
However, in windows 7, 8, and 8.1 you can press windows key + T to move to the first taskbar button, and then press alt+enter to open the properties dialog.

David.

Does this also work with Windows 8 or 8.a?

That's a great, to-the-point primmer. Thanks. Does it work the same way in
Windows 8.1?

Hi, Jim. Assuming you are using Windows7, since you didn't specify:

To always show all icons in the system tray


1. Open the Start menu with the Windows key

2. Press escape followed by Alt Enter.

3. Tab to the Notification / Customize button and press Enter.

4. Check the checkbox for always turn on all icons and press Enter.

5. Tab to Okay and press Enter.
