I have a program that I need to run more or less continuously, but which I won't need to access very frequently. Currently, launching the program creates a window and causes the program to appear on the taskbar. I'm fine with the program window appearing, but I'd just as soon the taskbar be reserved for programs that I need to switch between frequently—it would be superior for this program to only appear as an icon in the notification area, if at all.

Is this possible? How do I do this?

While it's true that I'm not opposed to putting a program in the system tray, this question can be correctly answered in ways which that question cannot. – jsnlxndrlv Nov 26 '11 at 10:14
