Hello,

  I would like to hide existing taskbar icons. For example, if I launch calc.exe, I don't want to see an icon in the taskbar. Any Ideas?

"AceHide Free is a small tool to to hide any application window by using a hotkey or via an icon in your system tray. You can quickly close all (or the top) windows without having them visible in the taskbar. Use it to save space in your taskbar area or to quickly hide open applications without exiting them. The windows can be restored individually from the tray icon menu."
