Welcome to the Seven Forums
I personally do not know if that can be done, but give it some time if anybody here knows how they will post.

Welcome to Seven Forums Ayex. Have a look at PMW (Process Manager For Windows) . This is one of the functions. I have not used it myself, but have seen it recommended for minimizing programs to the system tray/notification area. Previous versions of Windows could use TrayIt! , but I don't believe it works on Seven. A Guy
