Show all icons and notifications on the taskbar notification area

Windows 2008R2 gives a user the opportunity to show and hide specific icons in the taskbar notification. Since not al users have the same knowledge of specific settings in Windows i’d like to make this setting for them and show all icons and notifications

Solution:
Make a change to the Registry by using a GPO

Open your RDS Server User Policy and expand the following folders:

User Configuration, Preferences, Windows Settings, Registry

Right click and choose New, Registry Item

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key Path: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
Value name:
EnableAutoTray
Value type: REG_DWORD
Value Data (hex): 00000000

All should look like the above screenshot.

Click OK and you’re all set!
