Hello,
It's my first time here, I hope I'm posting this question in the right place.
I'm looking for a program/way to close or deal with sys trey programs (ie  babylon,dragking,daemon toolz.. )
The only way I can interact with these kind of program (by keyboard)  is hitting the Start button and press tab till it got the focus.
Wouldn't it be nicer if you see it in ALT-Tab widget?
Any suggestions ?
Thanks

Welcome to DC!

I don't know of an application that can do this, but it seems like this might be something that could be made in a "Coding Snack". If nobody knows of an existing program you might try posting in the "Coding Snacks/Post New Requests Here" forum.

You can try creating a shortcut to taskmgr.exe (task manager) and assigning a hotkey to that such as Win-Tab.

That way you'll get a list of running programs including systray.

Or you could just use ctrl-shift-esc, which is the default shortcut to bring up Task Manager under Windows (2k and both flavours of XP anyway...).
