Put this code in your Form_Resize function and it will hide the form when you minimize it:

Private Sub Form_Resize()
If Form1.ScaleHeight = 0 And Form1.ScaleWidth = 0 Then
    Me.Hide
End If

End Sub

To bring it back, just put the command "YourFormName.Show"  wherever you want the form to reappear.
