a task list is a windows concept
a pascal program is for DOS
have a good day.

If you have a CONSOLE application developed with Delphi, it may easily be hidden from that task bar (perhaps not from task list), I have to check dox

If you have a pure DOS application developed with a compiler for DOS? then no luck, it'll always show (it's managed by a virtual machine) and Pascal/DOS (and even BP7 if I'm right) has no means to do it

Ah, misread question.

VGR is correct.  It doesn't appear in Task Bar but does appear in Task List.  It is possible to hide some Windows applications from Windows Task Lists, however, there are other apps out there that show ALL running tasks, for example Win Tasks.
