 I am a little confused by your question.  Are you referring to the icons in your quick launch tray at the bottom right corner of your desktop?  Or are you referring to icons in your start menu? Or somewhere else?

  Since I don't know exactly where you mean, I will provide an answer for both the quick launch bar and the programs area in the start menu.

  To add an icon to the programs area of the start menu, got to "start", and then "settings", and then
"taskbar and start menu", and then click "advanced" at the top of the screen and follow the prompts.  Be carefull where you select the program link to end up.

  To add an icon to the quick launch menu, merely drag the icon from the desktop to the quick launch bar below.  If you don't already have an icon on the desktop menu you can right click on the icon from the "programs area" of the "start menu" or you can go into the particular program and then right click on it with the mouse until it is on your desktop and then drag it down to your quick launch bar.

  I hope this is helpful.  If not, please give me some more information as to what you mean by system tray.
Both of my suggestions may also be found in the Win2k help menu.

Most applications on install 've a provision where when not used they can be minimized to sit on the system tray.
Not all applications necessarily does that , it depends on the applications being used.
So if ur application(which u see on the desktop ) has got the options ( minimize to systray ) then u've to check that
option in the application itself. If u need to remove the clutter from ur desktop then u could use the
above mentioned tools.
To minimize to systray try the tools here

  There are innumerable programs that can do this.  One of the best sources I found for utilities is snapfiles.com
I did a check on snapfiles for what you are trying to do and there appears to be a few programs that will accomplish what you are trying to do.  Try looking at:
