Here is the problem I am having. I have two users, one who has more priveleges than the other... They both have the issue where this items in the system tray will not collapse. It follows them to other machines... roaming profiles.... but I cannot seem to correct it. I am looking for a registry change that I can make.
If they go to the properties, and notification area, and all their icons are set to “Show icon and notifications”.. They cannot change them (even the admin, and it states that it is likely controlled by Group Policy).
I have done everything from recreating the profiles, clearing the GP History & Rerunning GPupdate /Force. Recreated their profiles, logged in as local admin and verified that it was set correctly (it was). If I log on it is fine.. but these two always get the full system tray showing every icon
It appears to follow the user (which is why I rebuilt the profiles).. even with a completely blank profile, it doesn’t hide the items in system tray.
See screenshot below.
