How to Disable Sys Tray Icon in Opera?

If “notrayicon” attribute no longer hides system tray icon in Windows or Linux platforms, try this one:

In the address bar, type:
Search for “tray” or just scrool down until you see “Show Tray Icon” preference.
Uncheck the option.

        In older versions of opera you need to pass -notrayicon as a command line option.  If you run Opera by clicking an icon you should be able to add this switch in the properties or something.
        In newer versions of Opera where the posted techinque works, you need to scroll down to “User Prefs” and open that up before you can search for or scroll to the tray icon setting.  And after setting it you have to scroll way down and hit save, or you won’t have done anything.  And even then you’ve got to restart for it to take effect.
        Just thought I’d post all that since it confused me when I was doing it.
