Re: Disable the System Tray on Windows Vista

Sure i will help you out with this for completely disabling your system tray you need to follow the below steps:-
  1. Click on Start and type regedit.exe in the search box.

  2. Now registry window would get open and navigate to the following location.
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

  3. If the DWORD entry NoTrayItemsDisplay is already available in the left panel,change it's value to 1 .If donít have NoTrayItemDisplay, Then create NoTrayItem display entry and set the value as 1.

  4. Now close your registry window and restart you PC for changes to get affected.

I try to use the above mention steps in Windows XP and it's working fine and if you need to bring back your system tray you need to delete the key.
