mathiv,

  Since you said "win95 statusbar", I assume it is taskbar.
  You could use following example to disable or hide taskbar.

---
Private Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long
Private Declare Function EnableWindow Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal fEnable As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function ShowWindow Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal nCmdShow As Long) As Long
Private Const SW_HIDE = 0

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim hTaskbar As Long
   
    hTaskbar = FindWindow("Shell_TrayWnd", vbNullString)
    If hTaskbar <> 0 Then ' Found it
        ' Disable it (Pass True in 2nd parameter to enable)
        Call EnableWindow(hTaskbar, False)
        ' Or Hide it
        ' Call ShowWindow(hTaskbar, SW_HIDE)
    End If
End Sub
----

Regards.

My question is about windows taskbar. When I try to execute the above answer given by  yowkee I am getting syntax error at the statement "Dim hTaskbar as long".

mathiv,

  If you get syntax error at that line, it should be the problem of pasting code. Try remove the space in front of "Dim ...", then it should work.

  I resummit my comment as answer.
