How to Display All Icons in the System Tray on Windows 11

Do you ever get annoyed when you have to click an up-arrow icon to see all the little icons in the bottom-right corner of your Windows 11 computer? Well, you're in luck because there are two simple ways to make sure all those icons are always visible in your system tray. We'll show you how!

If you want to make sure all your app icons are always visible in the system tray, you can do so by following a simple procedure. First, open your system tray by clicking on the up-arrow icon. This will display a list of hidden icons. Among these icons, locate the one you wish to keep visible in the system tray. Once you've found it, click and hold the icon, then drag it and drop it alongside the other icons already present in the system tray. This action will ensure that the icon remains in the system tray at all times and won't be tucked away in the up-arrow icon's hidden menu.
