    I would like to see all of the icons in the system tray. Right now there are 8 icons showing with 2 little arrows indicating that there are more icons to see if I position the cursor over the arrows. Is there a way to make all of the icons be seen? Thanks.

    Right-click on the Taskbar > Properties, uncheck 'Hide inactive icons'.

    I have a similar issue, however with mine, I can't see all my system tray icons no matter how I set up the taskbar. For example I have checked "Place volume icon in the task bar" within the sounds and audio devices properties, but is doesn't show. Any clue?

    bart2brett, I don't have an answer for you re: the fact that you don't have any icons in the Taskbar. Maybe you can start another thread in the XP forum? Good luck; I hope you find the right answer.
