Remove Synaptics Touchpad Icon from System Tray
Recently I noticed a new tray icon after restoring my personal computer. This small system tray icon belongs to synaptics touchpad fitted on your PC.
In my seek to get rid of every useless tray icon wasting memory, I was very annoyed when Vista’s and 7’s automatic updates installed a new driver and the icon for the touchpad ended up in my system tray again. There’s almost no benefit to this icon, so it needs to go. The icon comes in two varieties.
You can just hide this tray icon of synaptics touchpad to save space in your system tray and reduce the number of icons shown in taskbar tray area in windows.
Here is how to hide the tray icon of synaptics touchpad:
Right click the tray icon of synaptics touchpad and select Pointing Device Properties.
Now the synaptics device properties will open up, click the Device Settings Tab.
Click the radio button which says, Remove icon from taskbar and click OK button.
That’s the synaptics device drive icon will disappear in taskbar system tray.
I realize this is very simple for most of you, but it’s good to cover everything that can save some memory.
