It should, but perhaps you'll want to put this in your Load handler instead of using the MouseUp handler.

Sub Form_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        icon.ContextMenu = New ContextMenu
        icon.ContextMenu.MenuItems.Add("Close", AddressOf YourExitHandler)
End Sub

Add a ContextMenuStrip to your Form and then add an Item called "Close" to the Menu.  Now select your NotifyIcon and change the ContextMenuStrip property to point to your ContextMenuStrip.  Double Click the "Close" item in the menu and add "Me.Close()" to the code stub.

See the code and Images below:
Public Class Form1
 
    Private Sub CloseToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles CloseToolStripMenuItem.Click
        Me.Close()
    End Sub
 
End Class

Open in new window
