I want to add my application(or main form.. really small) to the taskbar, not in the systray, not in the quick launch, but as a seperatte entity in the taskbar. Some people may call this a deskbar, i have no idea what its called. MS Power toys has a vitual dekstop program and even audio player that are installed as toolabrs in the taskbar. Its a great way to launch your app.

I do know MS set it up as a new toolbar. By right clicking on the taskbar, you can hide toolabrs like quick launch, links, and even their program. You can even drag it off the taskbar like you would quick launch.

Any ideas??

It's possible you're referring to AppBars:

Hey, that appBar example was really good, but it can't be docked inside the taskbar. I need my app to be a part of the taskbar just like the quick launch , links, google toolabr (in ie), etc..

I dont think my program can be an exe either.. i think i have to make it a .DLL and somehow load it into the bar.

still.. any help is appreciated.
