    Question unknown technique

    How do you send a program into the background inside the program? Like, the program sending itself into the background so you can't see it in the system tray or when you do ctrl + alt + del?
    If thats too specific a question, what category would it fall under? multitasking?

    Do you mean like multiple word documents opened in word? If so, I think you need to use MDI.
