Intel Graphics Tray. System Tray icon which gets installed with the drivers for onboard VGA cards based on the Intel 81x graphics chipset. Double-clicking on it enables you to quickly change the display resolution, save your current Display Scheme, or configure your onboard graphics card.  You can also configure keyboard hotkeys (shortcuts – this is handled by another background task called HKCMD).  You can access the same features through the "Intel Graphics Technology" icon in the Control Panel.

Recommendation :
Although great in theory, on some PCs we have found that whenever IGFXTRAY and HKCMD are running, Windows Explorer is prone to hanging and showing as "not responding" in the Task List.  Our recommendation, therefore, is that you should not have this tray icon running, and that you should also not use the hotkey facility that comes with it.  Disable both IGFXTRAY and HKCMD with Startup Manager.
