Is there an easy way to get Past Items back to Current Items status in the Notification area on the Taskbar in Windows XP with editing the registry?

CO is right. In *some* cases, restarting the shell is necessary otherwise it may fail to work (in some configurations).

The following fix rectifies the problem:
