  • You are in the wrong forum, hmm if you google it I'm pretty sure there are a lot of programs that make icons.

  • Hello timmack,


    As I know about your issue, you could use NotifyIcon class, which Specifies a component that creates an icon in the notification area.

    More information and sample code, please read this in MSDN Library:


    However, like Serguey said, here is not the right forum. If what I said above is not helpful, I suggest that you repost your issue in the VB forum.

    I hope this can help.


    Have a nice day,
