TasomiaCommented:
First you need the handle of the Window then
send a WM_SYSCOMMAND message with SC_MINIMIZE.

Example to minimize notepad:

hWindow := FindWindow('notepad',nil);

SendMessage(hWindow, WM_SYSCOMMAND, SC_MINIMIZE, 0);

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
VAR
  h : THandle;
begin
  // "AOL" is the caption with Application you whant to minimize
  h := FindWindow ( NIL,'AOL');
  IF H<>0
    Then ShowWindow(h,sw_Minimize);
end;

Good luck
