Hello, Anthony. I got some easy step on how to add programs on your system tray.

Hope this will guide you to easily access those programs. 

First,  you need to enable "Quick Launch" .

1. Right-click anywhere in blank space on your Taskbar.

2. Click on "Toolbars" and the click on "Quick Launch". (Do not do anything if this option already has a check next on it.)

3. Go to "Start" menu and click on "All Programs" then drag it to the right of the "Start" button.

Second thing, adding your programs in System Tray.

1. Go to "Start" menu and click on the "My Computer".

2. Double-click the drive C and then "Documents and Settings" open the folder with your user name.

3. Go to "Start" menu click on the "Programs" and then "Startup".

4. Click on the program icon on your desktop and drag it to Startup folder. Also in alternative way, you can also open "All Programs" menu by clicking "Start" and do the same with any programs listed.

5. Close your Startup folder and reboot your computer. The program you have added will start after rebooting and icon will appear in the system tray. 

Hope this will help you out to your problem. 

Best regards.
