    How to put icons back from taskbar to "Notifications Area"

    (JUST FOUND THE SOLUTION via the control Panel)




    Seems silly, but I did this and now I can’t go back.

    My “Notification Area Icons” was not working right, so I opened it and checked the box “show all icons and notifications on the task bar” and it did.... Now my task-bar is crowded with all these icons and so I must put them back. The problem is, I have tried clicking all over the task bar but can’t find the tool/option to do it.

    A couple of pics should help.

BSOD - "Page Error in Non-Paged Area".
I love the Dev Preview so far. We were getting on so well. And then the (reimagine) blue screen of death shows up, with it's sad face. I thought I might have said something to upset it.
