Different colors in floating and system tray alarm icons

FAQ Question

Why do I get different colours in the floating alarm icon and the system tray alarm icon?



The icon shown in the system tray is by Windows limited to 16 colours. The big floating alarm icon is only limited by the maximum number of colours available on the current display setup. In the system tray icon, the nearest possible colour will be shown


  • If you want to use the system tray icon you should choose all your alarm colours and alarm acknowledge colours among the 16 basic Windows colours.
  • You should only enable one of the icons. By default both icons are enabled.
