Hello, Programs like MSN Live and AIM create icons on the task bar for simply running, even if they are not actively being used. I just switched from XP where programs like AIM and MSN Live would just stay in the system tray in the bottom right corner of the screen. I highly prefer this. If i receive an instant message i would like that specific window to create an icon on the task bar but have the program (with the buddy list) stay in the system tray. To be clear, they are not 'pinned' to the task bar currently. I just want them to be gone so my task bar stays as clear as possible. I want them to run without them staring at me. Interestingly enough Google Chat does exactly what i want. Basically i want this specific area to function like XP. thank you.
