clear duplicate icons from systray

9 posts in this topic

I have noticed that sometimes in systray there a multiple icons of the same application. And when I pass the mouse over them then all will dissappear except the one which is active. It is very annoying. I have a script working in a loop and after a while I will have a lot of duplicate icons.

This occurs because your application is crashed or do you kill its process.

Indeed I'm using ProcessClose(), but on different computer (with the same WinXP SP2) this behaviour does not occur.

This happens a lot with Java icons for example. When you point the cursor to the icons you will see that they will disappear.

I replaced ProcessClose() with WinKill() and now seems to be ok.

Use this UDF to clear out unwanted icons.
