Get Rid Of Remote Desktop Sharing Icon From System Tray In Windows Server 2003

When you are using Remote Desktop Sharing, an icon will appear in the notification tray. This is the small bar in the bottom corner of your desktop beside the time. Many people prefer not to have additional icons added to the notification tray. If so, you can prevent the RDS icon from appearing when you are using the communication tool.

To accomplish this, click start and then click Run. Type in services.msc and click OK. From the list of services, scroll down and double click Netmeeting Remote Desktop Sharing. Click the Log On tab. Uncheck the Allow service to interact with desktop option. Click OK and close the services console. Once you restart your computer the changes will take effect and the icon will no longer appear in your notification tray.
