Hi guys,

Windows 7 doesn't show tray icons by default. (User must adjust tray icon bar settings).
Is there a way to do/force this programatically (API/Registry etc.)?

Any hints are appreciated!

Right click on the "Show Hidden Icons" and select "Customize Notification Icons". From the page, select "Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar".
