Is there any simple code that will make my batch file process, when run, to go to the notification area rather than the taskbar?

Raymond Chen will curse you for mis-using the notification area for something that isn't a notification. – JdeBP Sep 23 '11 at 16:13
Raymond Chen needs to pay better attention to what happens in the real world – Paul Sep 24 '11 at 14:12

rbtray, traydevil and dm2 are all utilities for running processes in the tray.

I don't think this is something you could just code in a batch file natively.
