    Customize Notifications - 'Past Items' (XPPSP1)

    <UL><LI>Right-click 'Start' > 'Properties'<LI>'Taskbar' tab > 'Customize...' button[/list]Under 'Past Items', I have a long list of system tray icons, many of which don't exist onmy system anymore. I would like to remove most from the lengthy list. Any idea where these are stored?

    To clear the Past Items list:

    1. Use Regedit to navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVe rsionExplorerTrayNotify.
    2. Delete the IconStreams Value Name.
    3. Delete the PastIconsStream Value Name.
    4. Close all instances of Windows Explorer.
    5. Open Task Manager and select the Processes tab.
    6. Select Explorer.exe and press End Process. This will kill the shell.
    7. In Task Manager, press File / New Task and type explorer.
    8. Press OK.

    Thanks Telo. I also needed that information, as I had piles of those myself.

    Hi and you're welcome guys. Don't know if you use it, but regedit has a Favorites menu that you can utilize to find it easier the next time you want to clear that list again. You can name the favorite with hints as to what you've done as well.
