What is a System Tray?

Introduced with Windows 95, the system tray is located in the Windows Taskbar (usually at the bottom next to the clock) and contains miniature icons for easy access to system functions such as fax, printer, modem, volume, and more. Double click or right click on an icon to view and access the details and controls.[1]
