Hidden Taskbar Notifications

Expose all the Taskbar Notifiation Icons

 
  Description  
     
 

While rather minor - Windows 7 now defaults to hiding most taskbar notification icons. Every time you want to view or use of the handy taskbar notifications icons, you have to click on a little arrow. This makes sense if you have a tiny screen with too many notification icons, but for most users with large resolution screens, you may prefer to have these icons appear all the time.
