    How can I stop a program from minimizing to the system tray? THere's probably an easy answer to this, and yes, I googled it.

    That's a custom thing, so look in the program's menus, it's probably under 'properties' or 'options' or something like that.

    Depends on the customizing application. For instance in Windows blinds you get set the window to "roll up" when double clicking on the title bar of the window. Is Windows the operating system you're running? I know in Ubuntu (Linux) you can enable this feature without installing a customizing app.

    Can you clearify what exactly you mean? Are you saying when you minimize a program it goes to the taskbar in the bottom right? Are you trying to stop programs from loading there at startup?
