You may begin with looking at the sample ENUMDESK from MSDN. Then you should grab some code from www.codeguru.com - to display the popup menu with icons.

Hope this helps.

Hi, asker.
What I want is insert a menu bar into taskbar that simulates "start" on the taskbar.
Do you know any API to access it.
thank you.

If you mean the Windows Task Bar under "taskbar" and want to change its look-and-feel (GUI) - the answer is "no, there is no direct API to do this because the shell - Explorer.exe - is a separate application, not a part of Win32".
