Found this in my snippet folder. I think I remember it's in a loop because windows occasionally switches it back to default... or something like that :D...

while 1
    ControlSetText("[CLASS:Shell_TrayWnd]", "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]", "Name")
wend

Edit: In fact I would combine it with ControlGetText() to check the actual name, maybe in a timer or with adlib. Above code is in loop because that's the way I saved it to snippets :o...

You're using Vista correct? If so, then it'll be different for you. Use AutoIt Window Info or WinSpy to get the class or instance.
