Notification Icons - Current and Past

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.customize (More info?)

Can anyone explain the criteria that XP uses to determine if a notification
icon is current or past. I have several showing as past items in control
panel which relate to functions I use regularly, but are not in the current
items list. Why is this, and can I reactivate the ones I want?

    The icons are considered to be different, if their title changes (f.
    e. if this title is a status message).
    See "How to Clear Past Items from the Notification Area"
    (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=283084).
