Remove App Button From Taskbar without Minimizing it
« on: June 07, 2007, 12:23:36 AM »


I am running a program say Wordpad.
Is is available on the Taskbar as Wordpad Button
I want a software which removes Wordpad Button from Taskbar and puts it in the system tray

BUT a Big Big But Here...

The Wordpad should not be minimised to the System tray.

I should be able to continue working on the Wordpad with its Taskbar Button Removed and icon available in the system tray.

The Idea is to remove the button from the taskbar while still being able to work on the application.

Similar Feature is available in Winamp. (see Image Above)

A Discussion is Available at

A Big Thanks to All the People who are Putting in their input

HAh! It feels better now. I knew I needed a slap in the face to finally find myself.

Now let's see if they think you're me.

Careful... I have a bad reputation.

TrayIt Does Allow me to Put the App Icon in the Sys Tray But Does not remove it from the Taskbar without Minimizing it.
My Requirement is

Application (Like Notepad, Wordpad) Available on Desktop to work on
Taskbar Button of the Application Removed from the Taskbar
The Icon of the App may or may not be in the Sys Tray.
I Just Want to Remove the Taskbar Button while still being able to work on the Application

Thanks...

Skrommel has coded something like this to show dialog boxes on the task-bar.. maybe now, he could reverse the process. here's the link to ShowDialogsToo..


ShowDialogsToo - Shows dialog boxes on the task bar.

 :) Have a look at Trayer. It can show an icon in the tray, remove the taskbar icon, and a lot more, but you have to make a shortcut for every program you want to control.

Please stop by my site at  1 Hour Software by skrommel  for downloads and more info.

maybe something like object dock or object bar  from stardock that let you make whole new bars might be worth a look

Thanks Everybody Once Again.

Skrommel I Did Try Trayer And it did satisfy my needs. But the Software is shareware. I think there once was a Free version of the same which had the same feature. If you do have that version. Please do provide me the info. Thanks...
