Customize the System Tray Icons in Windows 10

System Tray

Windows 10 is the latest version of Windows from Microsoft and if you’ve not updated your computer to Windows 10, I suggest you to do the same as soon as possible. Microsoft is offering a free upgrade if you are running Windows 7 or later on your computer. But this free upgrade option is available for only 1 year from the date of release of Windows 10. Windows 10 brought back the old, much-loved Start menu back for all users. Everyone was looking forward to this feature, including me.

Now, customizing a computer or your operating system basically is something that everyone likes to do. There are various ways in which you can customize the look and feel of your computer and I have already covered a few of those ways to customize or personalize your computer. Here are those tips if you haven’t seen them yet.

Today I’m going to tell you how you can easily customize your System Tray icons in Windows 10. The System Tray is the bottom rigth corner of your computer screen, i.e. the place where you see your time and date along with a few other notifications in Windows 10. In earlier versions of Windows, it was easy to customize the icons and notifications appearing on the System Tray but with Windows 10, it is a bit more hidden. Here are the steps you can follow to personalise your System Tray icons on Windows 10.

These few steps listed below will help you to customize your Windows 10 System Tray easily.

  3. In here, choose “Select which apps appear on the taskbar”.
