Glad I do this because I enjoy it.(which I truly do)

Ok,  lol but please lets iron out all the details so that this is a one time modification, and beyond the three changes we move to a new question fair enough.  That said,

Changing to allow less then 25 with the ability to update later and allowing for opening folders instead of executing an application is I think understood and should not be a problem.

Windows to the sytem tray(by the clock)?

You want to be able to put all 25 windows in the system tray by the colck?
or
just this button application?

form layout Row of 12 top row of 12 bottom and one button in the center,  got that.
Shortcut's to anything, got that.  
This app only to system tray, got that.

You have a preference on the icon used in the sys tray?

I do have a thought for you with this.(scary Im looking at using myself)
In my mind if I were going to use this, I would want each of the commands available to me in the systray pop up menu
Allowing me to just right click scroll and click.

so the only time I would even look at the buttons or the window was to modify them.


just my 2 cents!
