    Outlook icon suddenly in taskbar notification area (XP)

    Until yesterday when I minimized Outlook there would be a representation of the open folder in my task bar. However, this morning that had changed. When I minimize Outlook there no longer is a button in my task bar, but an Outlook-icon suddenly appears in the notification area of my task bar (one for each open folder...). When I double-click on this icon Outlook reappears, along with a button on the taskbar.

    Has anyone else encountered this? How do I turn off this "feature"?

    Thanks,

    Arie

    It gets even more interesting. When I minimize all programs by pressing [windows][m] or when I drop to the desktop by pressing [windows][d] the Outlook-button stays on the task bar (as you would expect).

    However, if I chose "minimize" from within Outlook the button disappears from the task bar and I am forced to use the icon on the right-hand side (the one that suddenly popped up this morning) to get back into Outlook.

    Re: Outlook icon suddenly in taskbar notification area (XP)

    I ran a quick search on Google, and I came up with a few results that involve editing the registry (it looks like the same info from both sites). You can try this tip at Windows Registry Guide or this one at My Desk To Help.

    I hope this helps!

    That look's like what's happening. However, it does have me worried since I don't know who or what changed my registry settings...
