    how to throw a windows program into the taskbar on starting?

    How would I put my program into the taskbar right away when it starts? Even better, is there a way to get it to run not even in the taskbar?

    Use SendMessage() to send the window message WM_MINIMIZE to minimize the prog upon starting or you could send the prog down into the tray (or whatever it's called) rather than the taskbar. By tray, I mean the little bit down at the bottom right where you see little icons representing different apps.

    Using WM_MINIMIZE would be easier but probably not as good for what you want. You'll learn more going with the latter sh!t I mentioned in the above paragraph. yo. wh0re. unicorn. Bye.
