I have a gui program that I want to have a very small visible footprint. But I don't want it hidden.

When I have the gui open, it shows up on the taskbar, you can hide the gui to get rid of this, but i need it to be visible.

FYI, i'm not talking about the system tray (which can be removed with #NoTrayIcon) this is the taskbar, where all your open applications show up.

Any Ideas

Gui, +ToolWindow

Gui, Add, Button, w100, Test

Gui, Show

Alternatively, if you don't want to change the window's appearance:

Owner: Use +Owner to make the window owned by another (but once the window is created, -Owner has no effect). An owned window has no taskbar button by default, ...
