Glad to hear you like TrayStatus! It's not currently possible, but I've added it to our feature request list for future consideration.

Thanks!

Good software, especially on a laptop. But I would also like to change the icons on the monochrome, but I can not find them in the exe file...

@Apex: Glad to hear you like TrayStatus! The icons aren't customizable at the moment, but I'll add your vote to the feature request as well.

Thanks!

Great utility! Would like to change the color, the font and the resolution of the icons. On a high resolution screen (1920X1080) the icons (see attached) don't look as sharp. Any idea whether this will be possible?

It should be possible, but at the moment I can't offer an ETA on when we might be able to implement the ability to use custom icons

That's fine for custom icons, thanks for the prompt reply!

I'm wondering, with HD screens and Windows 10 becoming more common place, wouldn't it be cool if the current icons are of higher-resolution / sharper/cleaner metro-like look? 8)

Many of us (MOST of us ?? ) can't type properly and we often hit the wrong key
Also we look at the keyboard when typing, not at the screen
sO WE SEE IT'S ALL WRONG AFTERWARDS!!! :x

It would be really good if you could add a config option to MAKE A SOUND (as in Control Panel / Sounds) on Change of State

The ideal config would have a checkbox to enable/disable a dropdown of the Control Panel sounds

Then I would know when my blundering fingers had once again hit Caps Lock instead of Shift

I'd pay money for that enhancement.

I'm a bit confused as to how this would differ from the Toggle Keys option that's already built-in to Windows? Could you provide some clarification?

Thanks!

1) Wonderful to get such a prompt response from you! Thank you.
2) TrayStatus meets a real usability need and is v good as it stands now. Thank you again.
3) IF I understand and am using your software correctly, the various keys toggle just as they should, but VISUALLY ONLY.
..
I've just deleted a long response, because I realise you said "Toggle keys as BUILT INTO WINDOWS"
and I hadn't thought of using that option - not thinking of myself as needing such accessibility features
I will check up and post again later

You're quite right. Windows Toggle Keys feature fills the bill for me.
I'd just never looked there.

TrayStatus provides the visual element missing from most laptop & tablet keyboards
Toggle Keys provides the audible element.

Thanks again

Hello,

I just upgraded to v2.2 and since I'm running Windows 7, the Windows 10 themed icons don't look very nice. Would BFS consider an option to toggle between the "old style" icons that were in v2.0.1 and the new ones? I don't want custom icons just an option to use the previous icon set.

I attached a small image of how both the old and new icons look on my machine.

Thanks!

We are planning to add the ability to choose different icon sets, so we'll definitely let you know when we've implemented that!

Thanks!

Same here... I am holding off on upgrading from 2.0.1 because the Win 10 icons don't contrast with the background enough to know when Caps Lock, etc is on or off... I'm sticking with the green background until there is a better choice.

We've released TrayStatus 3.0 Beta 1, and you can now choose from Dark or Light Icons, the Old Icons, or even create your own icon sets :)

You can grab the beta here if you'd like to try it out: https://www.traystatus.com/Download/Beta/

Thanks!

The icon choices are an awesome and perfect adjustment to Tray Status. Thank you so much for listening and making this change so quickly. This seems so rare these days. I own the "Pro" versions of DisplayFusion, LogFusion, and now TrayStatus. :)

Thanks again!

We need custom icons. Right now I have 3 hard drives, and the icons look the same. We need a way to distinguish.

Also maybe a dock bar, separate from the built in notifications, because it gets confusing all jumbled together. If I had a dock bar (or tray status bar, whatever) I can put that bar where ever I want and know what is going on with ALT, NUM, CPU, MEM, Disk, Network.. etc.. Just a suggestion to have a moveable bar. I don't consider "tray status" a notification, that needs to be more prominent and make separate, in my opinion.

Oh and also you fill memory, you fill cpu, you fill network, why not hard drive? maybe a fill icon to show approx usage for I/O..something like that.

Maybe the custom icons can help with this, and I like the green, but maybe add more colors or choose our own.

This is a GREAT start, I have to say I love binary fortress, this is my 3rd product.
