    Can anyone tell me how to hide the tray icon. I mean a single tray icon and not the whole system tray. I know the hide inactive icons method. Is there any other method. I read the registry tweak to hide all tray icons in fast track on windows registry. Is there any tweak to hide a single icon.
    I want to hide Azureus or flashget icon from tray.

    I dunno about flashget, but you can hide azureus from system tray by going into its options.
    Azureus - Tools > Options.

    Interface tab - <Enable System Tray> Uncheck this option

    I'm sure there'd be something similar in flashget.

    If you're referring to what I said, then no. What I mentioned above does not display the azureus program at all in systray. What you said will display it in systray but will always hide it so you have to click on the unhide button to view it. Slight difference. :)
