If you find that style too restrictive for your GUI, you can remove the button from the taskbar by using the "parent" parameter when you create the GUI. If you do not have a parent, then you can use the ever-present, but hidden, AutoIt window: :>

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

; Create parent
$hGUI = GUICreate("Parent", 500, 500)

; Use parent handle when creating child
$hGUI_No_TaskBar_1 = GUICreate("Child", 200, 200, 100, 100, Default, Default, $hGUI)

; Or use the Autoit window
$hGUI_No_TaskBar_2 = GUICreate("AutoIt Child", 200, 200, 200, 200, Default, Default, WinGetHandle(AutoItWinGetTitle()))

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

The icon in the systray/notification area will always be present unless you use #NoTrayIcon or Opt("TrayIconHide").

I hope that helps. :unsure:
