Send Window To Tray WITHOUT Minimizing

Post by sukhjinder » 06/06/07, 5:58 am

Hi All,
I am looking for some FREE & Lite application which can put Any top level window to system tray WITHOUT Minimizing it so that I can continue working on it. The kind of functionality winamp provides as it is available as a window which can have its icon only in the system tray.

Thanks...

Icon in Sys Tray only not on Taskbar

Thanks for the Reply aktiwers but My Requirement is to have the Icon only in the System Tray and not on the Windows Taskbar with The Application Window still visible(not Minimized to System Tray).

to See What I Mean
You Can Launch Winamp.
Ctrl-P (Preferences)
General Preferences
Then Look for the option Show Winamp in:
here there are 2 options
Taskbar
System tray
When You Check System Tray and Uncheck Taskbar
then Winamp Icon is visible only in the System Tray (and Not on The Taskbar) even when Winamp Main Window is Visible.

I Hope I've Made the Things clear now
Bye...

OK, Let me put it again.
I have a program say Wordpad open.
It is available on windows Taskbar.
I'm working on Working right now.
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 System tray.

I 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.

Im sorry non of them could do that for you. As I said, I cant test how the apps really works, as I dont use windows.
I get what you mean, but thats very specific.. Well hope you find something you can use.

iTunes also has this feature. But that is written into the executable as it is in Winamp. May I suggest a web site
called Donation Coders. The app you seek may not exist
but they can tell you if it is possible then they probably
will build it for you. They have some neat apps. Look up Skrommel, a developer at that site. He should be able to help.

You could try this sample application available at the code project.
Minimize any window to system tray using Windows Hook
It may do what you want.
