Can you change how long it takes for the hide inactive symbol to come on. I would like to change it to around 10 minutes, instead of having it longer.

Can it be done some place in the CONTROL PANEL or the REGISTRY?

thanks

The Symbol in the NOTIFICATION area...by the clock

I'm talking about the "circle with an arrow in it" icon that comes up after a long time to hide open applications on the task bar.

Its at the bottom righthand corner where the clock is...notification area on the taskbar

Again, Does anyone know who to change the time before the hide icon symbol appears?

Slumpy would like to know if there is a time limit somewhere that tells XP that the icon is inactive and may be hidden, If he can change that time to hide them quicker. I do not think there is, but there might be somewhere in the registry. Anyone have any clues?

heh yah i guess the setting would be in the registry SOMEWHERE,, might take a bit of searching through the shell folder extensions to find it,, but you might try some keywords like,, inactive

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
