I want to be able to save every key I press to a file
but I don't want to have the form on top or the active form.
I want it to be on the task bar but still logging every key I press. Can It be done and how?

Yes it can be done but you need a system wide message hook.
Like msghook.dll and it isnt easy.

If you could run through the easiest way to do it or help me find an example of it in VB6. I would be very thankful.

I suppose the obvious question is why do you want such a program?  It wouldn't be to collect people's passwords and such would it?

myqIG is right. There is no other way to do it, and it's not easy. Give him the points - or pay him to do the program.
