Thanx for the update/how-to Derek. I've put my vote in.

So I assume if this is added by RunRev, it will make the application appear
on the taskbar and therefore appear in the list of applications using the
Alt-Tab? After all, it appears in the Windows Task Manager as an exe. So it
is a ligit process on Windows.

I'll apply your suggestion with the buttons tonite and let you know how it
