Getting An App To Display An Icon On The Left-Side Of Toolbar

Hello Again Experts -

This shouldn't be too difficult. I've been fooling with the task bar tray so that it displays the icons I'm interested in.

However, I have some how managed to eliminate the behavior that allows minimized apps (like Outlook) from showing a icon on the left side of the task bar. Right now the icon appears in the system tray on the right side.

Sounds pretty basic. I'm trying to configure a new computer, so I'm delving into an area where I rarely go.

Thanks to whomever may help.
