Does anyone know anything about this weird phenomena?
In response, I can tell you what I found out.
I have wondered about this sort of thing - repeated/duplicated "Banner, Sounds"
icons in the list of Notifications & actions
settings in Win10.
- (a) I don't see this sort of thing happening with SC. In fact, SC doesn't occur in the list at all, even though it does appear in the Systray when it is running - which seems a bit strange, but I presume that might be correct, because I have it as a "portable" app.
- (b) I do see this sort of thing happening with a few other apps that have a Systray presence. I had assumed it to be duplicated hooks in the Registry, or something. ABBY Screenshot Reader seems to be the worst offender with 30 so far, some of which I turned off as an experiment, but it seems to make no difference.
Interestingly, of those 30 ABBY icons, 27 are an identical type of icon, and 3 are another.
to clean up the Registry seems to make no difference either.Win7:
The Systray notifications was buggy and harmless, and ergonomically annoying
, in Win7, as some notifications that one needed would sometimes disappear from the Systray for no apparent reason. The workaround was to get them restored by restarting WE (Windows Explorer).Win8/8/1:
Don't recall noticing
any problems in this regard in Win8/8.1, but then I was in the habit of periodically restarting WE as a matter of course anyway, as WE often seemed to be at least part of the cause of some other problems.Win10 and subsequent versions of that:
In Win10, the Systray icons seem to be buggy and harmless also, but in a different way (as described above) and which is not
(so far) ergonomically annoying. So I tend to ignore it. I guess it's just cluttering-up the Registry.
Restarting WE seems to have no effect on this either, though it can still help to clear some other problems.
