How to Selectively Hide Tray Icons

I’ve had a number of requests to add a feature to Desk Drive that hides the tray icon. Turns out, you already have the ability to do this from the task bar. Here’s how.

  • Right-click on the “Start” button on the task bar
  • Select the Taskbar tab


  • Check the “Hide inactive icons” checkbox
  • Click the customize button to the right of the checkbox
  • Select Desk Drive in the list
  • Use the drop-down box to select “Always hide”


  • Click OK
  • Click OK again

The Desk Drive icon is now hidden. You can use this same technique to manage other tray icons as well.
