Hi Dennis,

 

Try opening the start menue, tabbing twice, then arrowing down to “Settings”. Then in settings, select “Personalization.” Now, in personalization, tab down to “Task Bar”, and select this, tab down to “Turn System Icons On or Off” and open this. Turn the items that you want to appear on and the ones that you don’t off. Unfortunately, in Windows 10, you do not have the option to customize the system tray like you did in earlier versions of Windows. You have to do this customizing in the Task Bar now.

Hi, All:

I think I'm confused about the system tray in Windows 10 Pro. I'm not finding JAWS listed and it should be there and there are other items I might like to remove from it.

I thought I found posts from list members that would allow me to add what I wanted and remove some excess.

Hi Margaret,
 
See if this helps:
1. Windows key + I, for Settings, then tab 1 time to, System.
2. Navigate / right arrow to, Personalization, press enter, then tab 1 time to get into the list of categories.
3. Down arrow to, Taskbar, press enter.
4. Tab several times to,Select which icons appear on the Taskbar link, press enter.
5. Tab through these icons, & press the spacebar to toggle or turn off / On.  If an item is checked it's, On, if it's unchecked it's, Off.  As you check / uncheck items here, you can press, Insert + F11, to open the System Tray to see if the results are taking effect.
 
6. Press, Alt + F4, to close, there's not an Okay button to tab to.

 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Hi, Mike:

Thank you very much. The choices that were offered bore much more of a resemblance to my system tray. I don't know if I just saw system tray and Windows 10 in the messages before and didn't read carefully enough or maybe tabbed somewhere instead of right arrowing or whatever.

I have a question. I have Windows security on in the system tray and whenever I look in the system tray, it always says no action needed. However, there have been several times since I got the Windows 10 last October that the only item involving shutdown when I've gone to shutdown the machine is update and shutdown. Are the two items separate and the update and shutdown is not a security thing? I try to be careful on the web, but anyone can make a mistake. Does this item change: Is it good to have it? I think safely remove hardware is sometimes in the overflow section when I have my external hard drive or Victor Reader Stream plugged in and I'm trying to make it easier to get to since the devices are precious.

Thank you again,

Margaret

Hi Margaret,
 
When you want to add or remove icons in the, System Tray, you're actually doing them through the, Select which icons appear on the Taskbar link, in the Taskbar category of Personalization.
 
whenever I look in the system tray, it always says no action needed.  This means no threats were found during a scan.
 
When you get the, Update & Shutdown option, this means you have updates available and you're being asked if you would like to install the updates, then shut down the computer.  You can go to Update and Security to see what the updates are first just to make sure what you're updating just in case there's an update you don't want installed.  These can be security updates as well as program or operating system updates.
 
When you get the Safely Remove Hardware thingy, this should only appear when you have an external device connected to your computer like, an external harddrive or your Victor Reader.
 
 
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Also, while I haven't worked with this for a long time, I don't think JAWS shows in the system tray unless you have JAWS set to show in the system tray and not show in tab order. The command JAWS key j moves you to the JAWS window and the interface is different if you have JAWS display in the system tray. You may know all this but if you don't, my remarks may be helpful.

A slight correction to Gene's keystroke to access Jaws.  To open the Jaws context settings the keystroke is, Insert + J, whether you run Jaws from the system tray or not.
