In this sixth article of the series called “Taking Control of your Windows Desktop“, we’ll take a break from the Desktop proper, and look at the Windows 7 Notification Area and how it can be customized to only display the notifications that you choose.
In case you’re wondering, “notifications” refer to the messages you see appearing from the small icons in what we use to call, the “tray area”, down where you see the date and time at the lower right corner of the Taskbar. The small icons represent memory resident programs (such as your anti-virus program) that are always running while your computer is turned on.
The cool thing is, you can customize what you see in that area.
Click on the video below to see how to customize the Windows 7 Notification Area.
