Is there a way to have the DAX Control Panel and the SmartSDR CAT not occupy space on my task bar but, rather, exist in the systray?

I'd love to not have so much taskbar space dedicated to something that just runs in the background.

Great idea, Richard. Alas, moving an app into Windows taskbar requires specific API calls and support, so this sounds like an enhancement request to me.

Or you could create a 2nd Windows desktop and move the apps you don't want occupying Taskbar space on desktop 1 to desktop 2.

It's a feature already in Windows 10.

Also make sure the setting "Show taskbar buttons on" is set to "Taskbar where window is open" to ensure all apps are not shown on all desktops.

Great idea! I run two monitors off my PC and a third off my laptop so this will work great.  I should have thought of it myself. lol  73's

My understanding is that these objects used to be systray items, long ago, but a lot of confusion about where to find them and how to use them ended that.

I thought I'd heard something to that effect. Shame it's gone. I was hoping there was a setting somewhere I'd not found to get them back to the systray. No worries.  73's.

Check out RBTray on SourceForge, DAX and CAT can still be parked in the tray.
