Chapter 2. The Start Menu and Taskbar > Using the Notification Area

Windows XP changes the name of the system tray (or just tray) to the notification area, which lives at the right end of the taskbar, holding the clock and small icons that monitor activities on your computer or network (Figure 2.33).
