How do I remove a program from the 95 or NT taskbar while the program is still running?  I've designed a toolbar but I don't want my network users to constantly see the toolbar listed on their taskbar.  Thanks!

Your application main window must have WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW extended style. You can set this style at run time with SetWindowLong or if you're programming with MFC by Cwnd::ModifyStyleEx

That also makes the windows's caption appear smaller, like a toolbar's, which is probably what you want.  There is a technique for doing this without making the caption smaller, but I suspect that is not what you need anyways.  If so, post a comment to let me know.
