  KSTray Vs. 1.03 - Updated 08/12/2006

This is a utility that allows you to minimize any program to your system tray area and remove it from the task bar. You can define any program, and you can also define your own icon to use! KSTray will remember the program the next time you run it as well. At any time, you can show or hide the program window.
This is donation-ware! (No nagging windows) :)
For my address, please send me an e-mail. Thanks!

was d2gtray, KSTray - This is a nice utility which sends any program to your system tray. It automatically hides it from the taskbar too. Cool development.
