This little prog. provides a very handy feature : converting any app to a tray icon just holding control and clicking minimize.

If you want to reorder and hide some icons, then ShellTrayInfo is a free alternative:

(As you see, no need to buy PS tray factory if you only need those features; I still haven't found a free alternative for the 'send keyboard combos to tray icon' feature; let me know if you find one)

Excuse me if this is a bit "off thread", but is there a way of preventing icons of software that you want to leave permanently running from appearing in the tray? Or perhaps flashing up during Start Up (like the warning lights when you turn on a car's ignition) and then disappearing?

If you go into the taskbar's properties page, there's a 'customize' button for the Notification Area.  When you press that you get a dialog that lets you choose from 3 options for each program in the tray:

1) hide when inactive
2) always hide
3) always show

Thanks for that.  I actually remembered that option as I was driving home from work. :-[ Now you know why Pooh is my avatar - a bear of very little brain.
