    Customize notification area


    Is there any way to make the notification area slide out, like on older systems, instead of opening the little window?

    Hi there Skit, and welcome to Eightforums!

    You mean like it was under Windows XP? Where the notification icons would slide to the left?

    Don't think it is possible in Windows 8. This feature was already removed in Windows 7. So I see there is no way this going to change anymore.

    Just start getting used to the new way the notification area works .

    Greetz!
