    I'm tidying my task bar by hiding superfluous icons. In "customise notifications" window inside taskbar setup there is a list of past icons that are no longer relevant. How do I delete them?
    Thanks in advance.

    How To Clear the Past Items or Icons List in the TaskBar

    1.Open Regedit Navigate to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\TrayNotify

    2.Delete the IconStreams and PastIconsStream values

    3.Open Task Manager, click the Processes tab, click Explorer.exe , and then click End Process .

    4.In Task Manager, click Applications, click New Task , type explorer , and then click OK .


    The above worked for me but when some one else tried they reckon it added the start menu folder to it. Follow the instructions carefully & it should work.
