    How would I go about removing some programs from the taskbar so that when they are open they are not shown down there? Reason is I have installed a second monitor which has have messenger running but since messenger is open all the time it is listed in the taskbar. I want to get rid of that.

    Cheers.

    Right click the task bar/properties/hide inactive icons/customize. Highlight the one you want then select 'always hide'.

    Thanks for your reply but thats not what I mean. That hides icons in the tray. I am talking about the part next to the tray where every-time a program is opened it is listed there. I want to remove messenger from that.

    Ahh sorry. You could give PowewrMenu a go. (freeware) Then hide it in the other section of the sys tray.
