Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Hey Parker -- I should have been more specific.
I'm trying to use the same program launcher that I have used for many years in XP in Win7 but the program CoolTabs lost it's functionality to quickly activate it. It had hot keys and "hot edges" in XP but those do not work in 7.
So I was hoping to at least give it on the Taskbar and pin it as the 1st icon there as the next best way to quickly pop it up. (or make it be the first icon there because of the program being run during startup.) I also wanted it to be a big and obvious icon for my wife. It goes by default into systray and has no option to make it run on the taskbar.
What I see on the forums is people wanting to get things off the taskbar and onto the systray. I just need to go the other way in this case.

So like ballo who started this I want to know:
1/ Can a system tray icon be permanently moved to the taskbar applications area?
2/ If not, can a background process be assigned a taskbar icon when active?
