Customize the Bottom Right Corner of Windows 7

Microsoft has called it the Status Area…now known as the Notifications Area…most just know it as the bottom right corner of Windows. –PC Pitstop.

Windows 7 made a number of changes to the way that Windows worked. It also made some small ones — for example, the Windows Taskbar’s Status Area is now called the Notifications Area. No matter what we call it, it’s the area that is at the bottom right-hand corner of the monitor (in the default location of the Taskbar).

In the past, we could hide unused icons. We could also hide individual icons, if the individual program added that function to the icon it installed in the status area / notification area.

Windows 7 gives us more control, if we want to use it…

We can get to the dialog box in a couple of ways. One is via Start Menu and its Control Panel display. But, the other way is a lot easier. So, we right-click on either the expansion triangle, which would show all the active icons in the Notification area, or we can right-click on the Date & Time section.
