Possible Duplicate:
Windows application to hide an application from the taskbar

I have a program on my computer that displays both a taskbar and a tool tray icon. I only need the tool tray icon. Is there a way I can turn off the taskbar icon?

The program itself does not have an option for this.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Which operating system and version? Please edit your question to include this detail. – iglvzx Jun 4 '12 at 22:30

Not within windows. You can choose which icons to see/hide in the notification area, but the presence of a taskbar icon is only definable in the application options or through a third party app - not sure if any exists for Windows7 but apps like Taskbar Shuffle and Power Menu have shown that it is possible.
