Hi, I am trying to make a exe file that runs in background, with no minimized tab in the taskbar. Just like dropbox, etc. I am writing the code in matlab and will deploy to exe. Thanks for the answers in advance

What do you mean "in background"? If you don't want a window, don't create one.

Do you mean you want to run in the notification tray? Then hide your window, and create a notification icon. The relevant Win32 function is Shell_NotifyIcon(). There's code out there for notify icons in Matlab already.

Thanks Razor. Sorry I could not check back on the answer for a while. Actually I figured out, that if you dont make a GUI it runs in the background. But that notify icon is useful information.
