How to create an extra start button on the windows taskbar?

Hi everyone,

I was wondering how to create a winforms / WPF application in c#, that creates an extra start button next to the windows start button on the windows taskbar.
Just like Google does when you install the Google toolbar.

Any ideas on how to do this?

Greets, Tys

I'd already found those pages. But that still needs a lot of research to finally do what i wanted to do.
Could there perhaps be a more simple solution to create that taskbar start button?

If there is I haven't found one yet :) It looks like a fairly complicated as there is no .net wrapper that does the work for you. I can't find anything simpler yet. I'll keep searching tho

Today i've tried to create something by using the bandobjects (as discussed on codeproject) and i've got some interesting results.
For now i haven't gotten that far that it does exactly what i want, but it looks a bit like it.
I'll continue my research on these bandobjects and i'll try to post some more info here.

Thanks for your help!
