How would i minimize a program so it minimizes to the tray, or how could i do this: when the user clicks the forms minimize buttons, or on form minimize, instead of minimizeing, it hides the form, cause i know how to do the icon in the tray thing?

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
End If

End Sub

look at the knowledge database of microsoft at it explains everything you need to know about tray icon.

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