Move program to system tray

Is it possible to define which programs that should not be shown in the windows taskbar when running, but instead have them shown in the system tray( just like it's possible to set up within icq, winamp etc. )

More specifically, i'm running Lotus Notes, and i don't want Notes  to take up a spot in the taskbar - i'd rather have it only in the system tray.

I don't think( not sure though ) that you can set it up from within Notes, so i ask if it is possible to somehow define it in the OS instead.

Any suggestions appreciated, thanks :)

Hi,

If there is no option in the software about your question don't search anymore.
Ther is no way.
This option need to be programmed in the software.

It is like your Windows Task Manager : Menu Options / Minimize in use.

You need to make a request for this option.

Ok, waiting.

I will have an icon in the systray while my script is running.
I must use API or ActiveX and implement them in my script in order to running.
It will be the same for any program.

But why not a tool exists to do this ?
I will do a search.
