Removing the DTS control panel from the system tray is a recording file that allows you to remove the DTS control panel from the system tray. This is a simple registry modification that you can do yourself.

Windows 10 will soon be available, and to everyone’s surprise, Microsoft has added an update reminder to your current Windows installation. Although it is a small icon, the reminder appears as a new icon in the taskbar.

The icons in the taskbar are halfway between a service and an application and have the advantage of a user interface. They are listed under the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. You can delete them, but note that this not only deletes the icon, but also prevents the application from performing its actions.

How to troubleshoot the problem:

Everything that appears in the tray means that it is a program whose user interface is configured internally to be “near the tray”.

You must check its settings to ensure that it does not remain in the bin when it is reduced or closed.

If no such settings can be found, you must either manually exit the program to remove it from the drawer and/or delete it from your startup program list to prevent it from starting Windows.
