taskbar past items



if you go to control panel, taskbar and startmenu settings, select taskbar and click customize, you will see lists of current items and past items. under past items you may have a good number of entries that are no longer applicable which are left over from uninstalled programs. i thought these items would stay there forever as ther was no way to delete them. i found a way. go to microsoft.com, under support, select knowledge base. in the search box select windows xp and enter keywords ... taskbar past items. in the results click on how to clear past items from the notification list. write down the instructions given. i tried it with a little trepidation but it works. a byproduct of the process may be that your desktop icons may be rearranged(autoarranged), but its no problem to put them back where you want them.


excellent. Thanks for the tip.

My desktop didn't mess up though :D

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
