Always show all icons in the system tray

 

In some situations I need to always show all icons in the system tray.

So instead of this layout:

All users on the computer must see all icons ad shown here:

This can be done through the GUI by selecting Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar:

This can also be done for all users through a registry change.

Creating this registry dword value HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerEnableAutoTray and set it to zero will show the full tray for all new users on this computer.

If the user has another value in HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerEnableAutoTray this will be used instead of the one in HKLM.

We can set the value by this command in a SCCM or MDT task sequence:

Reg.exe Add “HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorer” /v EnableAutoTray /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
