in thread Statusbar icon "shell" to hide console window?

I think the OP wants a tray icon from which to control the script and hide the DOS box from view at all (both of which can be done), not a taskbar shortcut.

    Well, my way will hide the DOS box from view, but you're right, it won't provide a tray icon to control the app.
      But the DOS box is still in the taskbar, no?
        Yes there is minimized version of the server on the taskbar. But unless I click it, the console window the server is running in is hidden. If the server accepts command line input, minimizing it on startup and maximizing only when I need to control it works exactly the same as a statusbar icon except it's on the taskbar rather than on the statusbar.
