What setting or code need to apply for an applicationin to appear in Windows task bar

I have small VB 6 application that dosen't appear in Windows task bar.  When it is hidden behind some other applications, I want the user to be able to bring it to the front simply by clicking on its icon (minimized icon) on the Windows task bar.

I don't want resizable border.  I don't know how this thing would work out if we don't have minimize/restore buttons on the top-right corner of my VB exe form using fix border.  Do I need to use some other border style?

thanks

forms have a property .ShowInTaskbar which should be set to True. - rael

Your form has a property called ShowInTaskbar, just set that to true. The border of the form shouldn't matter (you can even be borderless.)
