I'm in customize notifications, which until reading your post I didn't know I even had. I noticed a long list of past items. How do I remove the past items. They are very old ones that I no longer need or want.

Hi Layback Bear, :thumbsup: to BC

There are couple of ways to clear your past items from the notification area. The easiest way to do so is to download the Taskbar Repair Tool from Kelly's Korner and use it to clear them for you. I have used this program for a couple of years and have had no problems with it so it is safe to use. This program has a free version with some limited options and a pay version but the free version does what you want to do and more and never expires.

Another way is also at Kelly's Korner and this involves downloading a regedit file which will clear the past items area when you click on the file and allow it to run. The regedit file you want to use is number 53 on the left.

The third way is to manually edit your registry yourself. Unless you are comfortable working with your registry I recommend you use one of the other two options above because if you make a mistake you can destroy your operating system and be faced with possible data loss and a reformat of your computer.

To manually edit your registry follow the instructions in this link:

Warning: mess with your registry at your own risk. Backup your registry before you attempt any changes to it.
