i want to hide A systray or taskbar icon i don't OWN !

I want to hide a window (say, ICQ NetDetect agent in the system tray, or the telnet window on the taskbar). Actually i won't stop the application, or hide its window (i would if i'd know!). So i can do this for my app, using the handle, but how to track the other windows, handles? Or another method?

Hi Mahara,

You can get the handles with FindWindow


Result := FindWindow('ProgMan', nil);
