Display settings icon in NT Desktop tray

By Jeff Yocom ·
Windows 98 automatically displays a Display Settings icon in the Desktop tray at the bottom-right of the screen, but Windows NT does not. Is it possible to add this icon to the tray in Windows NT?

I believe that is a function of the video driver not the OS. Check with the video card manufacturer and get the latest driver. My MGA card that came on this Compaq does have a icon in the system tray in both Win98 and NT

If it's in the system tray, then it comes from the manufacturer's software for the video card. If you're using the same card, it might be a matter of simply the manufacturer did it differently for NT. However, if you're looking to get something there to have quick access to the display settings, use the Quick Launch toolbar. Copy a shortcut there from the Display icon of the Control Panel and you're golden.
