Was your intend to hide inactive tray icons ? These are the instructions. If I misunderstood you, let me know, and also mention which OS you're using



<b>Automatically Hide Inactive Tray Icons (Windows XP) </b>
Category: Enhancements > Windows NT, 2000 & XP
This setting controls whether running tray programs should be hidden automatically when they are not active.

Open your registry and find the key below.

Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value, called 'EnableAutoTray' and edit the value according to the settings below.

Exit your registry, you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.


Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
Explorer]
Value Name: EnableAutoTray
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = display inactive icons, 1 = hide inactive icons
