If I create a new project with a form, and set the form borderstyle to none and then request that the form gets minimized (for this simple example, I created a timer that contained the command:  form1.windowstate=1

the form does not go into the taskbar, but instead a strange border icon appears on the desktop.

Is there a way to make this borderless window minimize into the taskbar?

Thanks,

In visual basic 5.0 theres a form property
you can set: "show in taskbar"..its listed in
the 'properties' window where you set all the
other properties.
