Another one of those “How To” tutorials from me. I had this issue for quite sometime and found a solution.
Thought I could let you guys know too.
Basically what we are talking about here is, right-click on the Taskbar and choose Properties, then choose the Notification Area tab, and click the Customize button.
Open up regedit.exe through the start menu search box, and then browse down to this registry key:
Now you will see two entries in the list: IconStreams and PastIconsStream. Select both of them and delete them. (You may want to make a backup with the export function before you do this)
It’s Charles Dickens’ 200th Birthday today! Here’s a Google Doodle for it!
The Google doodle commemorating the 200th birth anniversary of the greatest English novelist of the Victorian era features famous characters from Charles Dickens’ novels.
The British author created unforgettable characters such as Ebenezer Scrooge and David Copperfield.
The doodle with a Victorian feel does not link to the usual Google search engine results but since it’s about Dickens it instead directs users to the Google Books results page for Charles Dickens.
Among the characters shown on the doodle are Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit and Pip.
Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812 in Portsmouth, Hampshire, England. He was one of the most influential forces of 19th century English literature and his works include classics such as A Christmas Carol, David Copperfield, Bleak House, A Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations, The Adventures of Oliver Twist and Our Mutual Friend.
He worked as a clerk, a shorthand reporter in the court, a newspaper reporter, wanted to be an actor and finally became a writer. He died suddenly of a stroke on June 9, 1870.
