The proposed answer from "inthe" works, but you could add the following to keep the app out of the Windows AppBar:

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
 
  RegisterServiceProcess(GetCurrentProcessID,RSP_SIMPLE_SERVICE);
  { Add this code to proposed solution }
  ShowWindow(Application.Handle, SW_HIDE);
  SetWindowLong(Application.Handle, GWL_EXSTYLE,GetWindowLong(Application.Handle, GWL_EXSTYLE) or
                WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW );
  ShowWindow( Application.Handle, SW_SHOW );


end;
