How do I minimize to the trey
I have a requirements to put an icon of my app in the trey when it is
minimized. How would I do this.
1. From a console app.
2. From an MFC dialog app?
Yes, an MFC dialog app. All Dialog apps, if I remember
correctly, come with an App.ico file. You can draw on
this or replace it with your own. If you replace it, then
you may need to find how it links with the code and make
sure your file is used instead.
Not sure if you can override the icon of a console window.

I was glad to discover that I could minimize Outlook to an icon at the right of
my task bar instead of to the standard big minimize bar.
At least, until I found out that half of the time when I click on it to expand
it, I get a ! message telling me that Outlook is not responding. I suppose
that's a function of my Exchange server. But having to click again slows
Is there a way to disable this message and maximize Outlook quickly?

I have a big issue with Acces 2007,whne i open a form,the window is
always minimized,i try to set the property "Auto resize" to yes,but when i
open the form it's minimized as usual and displays one record only unless
users scroll down the bar to see the records one by one...
Is there any solution for this?
What I did ( Access 2003 though ) was to put a macro with the command

For some reason when I click on Minimize the window still takes up the full
screen. Obviously I've changed something.
How can I restore it back to where the full screen is not used?
Do you mean minimise which is the leftmost icon, or do you mean the one in
the middle which takes it from full screen to a smaller screen. Assuming it
is the latter, hit that and then manually resize your window to the size you
want. After that it should alter to this size when you hit the icon.

I want to have my application to be alone on the screen. If other
applications are open, I want them to be minimized (normal applications have
this opportunity, I won't pay attention to the ones that do not have it...).
Do you know, how I can broadcast a Minimize-SYSCOMMAND to all windows
(instead of my own)?
Thanks for help,
::SendMessage(HWND_BROADCAST,...) would do this. But why do you want to remove control
from the user? This sounds like a Really Bad Idea. Only the end user should have control
of what is on the screen.

You should be able to do it by using ShowWindow(SW_SHOWMINIMIZED) on

Right-click the icon in the system tray and either check or uncheck "Hide

If no buttons, could be the workbook(s) are protected.

Whenever the user clicks to minimize their instance of Outlook 2003 it
vanishes -- the GUI exits out although the process is still running in the
background. If he reboots his box, he'll be prompted to empty the deleted
items folder and all but he is not able to access the application (alt-tab,
etc.) and it does not list in Applications (under Task Mgr.) only under
processes. Naturally, double-clicking the icon brings it right up of course
but that's a bit inconvenient.

You need to handle WM_SYSCOMMAND in the CMDIChildWnd derived class.
Something like :-

// TODO: Add your message handler code here and/or call default
if(nID == SC_MINIMIZE)
GetParentFrame()->PostMessage(...);//notify parent frame
