    Not to my knowledge. I'm sure if this was a built-in feature, M$ would have let all of us know. Perhaps they should include it in future OS'. Anyway....

    Actually, I did have one a program that would allow you to choose what programs to hide -- worked rather well. But, I'm now on WindowsXP -- and I read that there were unresolved issues with this OS and the program. So, I uninstalled it. If you're on something other than XP, then you may want to look into WatchCat. If you're on XP, then you may want to read up on it before downloading, etc. He also has a page called "similar tools" where links to other programs are provided.

    If this works...or you find something different that works......let us know.

    Well, I was hoping to do this without having to download anything, but I guess it doesn't really matter. I could always just turn my icq into a mail checker.

    Thank you, anyways.

    a while ago, there was a program called Icon Corral, it let you pick any programs which you could put in the system tray. Maybe this program is still around somewhere

    Morgoth, i think you misread the article there: it only works if you have the latest version of Outlook; there's no mention of WinXP. So, it should ( by my logic ) work on other versions of windows, so long as they're running Outlook XP.

    also, i have some tasty freeware for you:

    tray.exe: takes a program as a command line parameter, and shunts it to the tray.

    hideit.exe: sits in the system tray, and lets you selectively hide or dispaly all of the windows you currently have open.

    bon appetit
