    Which one is it I should be upset about?

    I've got lots - if I hide them I have this - what is the problem? The little triangle?

    Hey Adam,

    It's the small icon with two small white clouds in the notification area on the right side of the taskbar.

    I shouldn't play around really when I'm happy with my PC - I've lost my clock now.

    I'll sort it out tomorrow or I'll just have to press Win + C. Ho hum.

    We have no problem with skydrive staying enabled, it's the icon in the taskbar that is the issue. (To be fair. Some people don't even care about skydrive period, much less being able to sync settings between the other pcs they don't even have )
    I do not even see mine, due to it stays hidden. Now if you are running Pro edition of 8.x, you can set to have the task group icons, to not hide when the person is logged into the computer.

    I deal with the not able to hide task icons on my Windows XP machine at work, due to some idiot in our state CMS, decided that was the best thing to do. It does nothing, and is actually a Real Estate eater, that you could have one more item on the bar showing, then grouped, or an arrow to the right, to page through the running apps.

    Check The Windows Club Ultimate Tweaker out. You cannot change IE stuff, but they have fixed the latest edition to be compatible with 8.x.
