Hide Running Applications From Taskbar, Alt Tab View, System Tray
Although it may not be obvious, when using the Windows 10 taskbar, you don't have to actually use this. You can actually achieve much more by right clicking any taskbar and unticking "Lock the taskbar" or "Lock all taskbars". Then, simply drag any of the taskbars to dock it to whatever edge of the screen you'd like. You can also move it to other monitors - this allows you to move the main taskbar (the one that contains the system tray) to a secondary monitor. This was actually a bug in Windows 10 that was fixed in Windows 11, but ExplorerPatcher restored this functionality due to popular demand.
Hide Running Applications from Taskbar, Alt tab View, System Tray
Your taskbar is the strip going across the bottom of the screen by default. It holds important features such as the Windows menu, the system clock, your volume manager, and network settings. It also shows which applications are currently open and running.
More information:I created a new user account on my PC, with a default configuration, and Password Safe seemed to work correctly, at least for a little while. Although, after- the database locked itself- I clicked on the task bar to activate itPassword Safe came to the front (of the previously active window) but the passphrase entry field did not get the focus, as I expected it to, and I had to click it to give it the focus.However after changing a few user settings Password Safe reverted to the reported erroneous behaviour (not appearing when I click the taskbar button). I it may have been changes to one or both of:- Themes - Windows 7 Basic (the default) or Windows Classic (which I normally use)- Taskbar buttons - Always combine, hide label (the default) vs Combine when task bar is full (my normal setting)However I can't consistently replicate the behaviour of Password Safe with specific settings, so I can't be sure that these settings are the ones causing the problem.I ended up deleting the test user profile, and trying all four combinations of the above, and in all cases Password Safe demonstrated the bug. In ALL of my usage, I have the environment variable PWS_PREFSDIR set to a directory that all users have read and write access to. To replicate the bug with all four combos of Theme and Taskbar Buttons, I did this:- delete pwsafe.cfg, so starting from a known default config (I did this for each of the 4 combos)- run Password Safe and load test database- turn OFF "put icon in system tray"- close Password Safe - run Password Safe again, load database- Play FreeCell while waiting for database to lock. FreeCell window mostly covers Password Safe, but not completely, so I can see when it locks - at which point it disappears from the display (rather than displaying the passphrase prompt)- Wait at least ten seconds after database locks, just in case- click Password Save button on task bar

You will notice that clicking on the small system tray icon will effectively minimize and maximize the player. The minimize action will hide VLC from the task bar while the media continues playing. You will find more options from the right click menu. The basic controls like play, pause, stop, previous, next, record, volume and speed controls are all there. You will also find the option to open media and quit the player.
The media will continue playing and you will need to use the same system tray icon to bring up the player on the screen. Basic controls can be performed right from there. It also displays notifications.
Since Windows 95, the taskbar has taken up the bottom of the your screen on your Windows computers. Over the years, the defaults designs and color schemes have been tweaked, but the general layout has stayed the same: start menu on left, programs in the middle, system tray and clock on the right. While every version of Windows has allowed some bits of customization and tweaks to the Windows taskbar, Windows 10 brings it to a whole new level. Here are some tips, tweaks, and pointers to help you use the taskbar the way you want to use it.
LXQt Panel is the bar situated at the bottom of your screen by default. The panel contains an application menu, a desktop switcher, a quicklaunch bar, a taskbar, a system tray containing applets, and a clock. The panel is highly configurable with a number of settings and plugins which is detailed in the Customizing section and also contains how to add or remove applets. To see information on widgets not installed by default see the Non-Default Widgets section.
