Remove QuickTime Icon from System Tray

If you install QuickTime, the defaulting settings create a desktop icon and also an icon in your system tray that shows up every time you start your PC. You can remove the icon from your tray by right-clicking it and selecting Exit, but it will be there again the next time you restart.

When applications install themselves into the system tray without giving me a choice during setup. QuickTime has no good reason to be in the system tray, but it’s there anyway. Disabling it is not as spontaneous as it used to be. Here I’ll explain the procedure step by step.

Right-click the icon and select QuickTime Preferences.
Next, select advanced tab (furthest to right).
Locate the option Install QuickTime icon in system tray in the "Tray Icon" area near the bottom and uncheck the box next to it.
Way out the preferences by selecting OK.

This should remove the icon from your tray and it should not be there the next time you restart your computer.

For the Older version:

Right-click the icon and select QuickTime Preferences.
Next, select Browser Plug-in.
Locate the option QuickTime system tray icon and uncheck the box next to it.
Exit the preferences by closing the window (click the X at the top right, there is no OK or Cancel).

This should remove the icon from your tray and it should not be there the next time you restart your computer.

If you are using Windows Vista, you will get the message when you close the dialog window. Just click the “This control panel works correctly” button, and the icon should be gone forever.
