Could someone please tell me what the recessed area at the right side of the taskbar is called. It includes the clock and icons for programs that magically seem to get started when Windows starts. Also, could you tell me where Windows 2000 (or 95, 98, ME) stores the information on what programs to start for this area. I don't find them in the 'Startup' folder. It appears that the (applications?) that display icons here show up as 'processes' rather than 'tasks'. Is it possible to create an application using VB6 that resides there.
