    Disable Task Icon Alerts (XP Home)

    Hey, folks. Is there some way I can disable the icons on the taskbar from flashing for whatever reason? Like when PhotoShop if finally fully open, my AutoHide taskbar pops up and flashes the PhotoShop task icon to let me know it's ready. When I open several programs at once, I have to hit each one to make it stop flashing. When running a macro that involves another program, the taskbar pops up and flashes the program.

    I normally don't mind getting flashed, <img src=/S/love.gif border=0 alt=love width=15 height=15> but this is getting irritating. Please tell me there's a way to stop it.

    Thanks,
    Lenny

    <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15> With "TweakUI for Windows XP" under the "General" tab / Focus.... you can regulate how many times the Taskbar flashes before it stops. Just UNcheck the "focus" item in the menu.

    You can download Tweak UI directly from Microsoft, it's in the "Microsoft PowerToys" for Windows XP Package.

    Thanks Jeff, I can use that site too - XP seems to need lots of fixing. Hopefully not for too long.
