    How do I start a program (e.g. Internet Explorer Version 8) in a minimized
    window, just a tab in the toolbar? Can this be done for any program and is
    there a universal switch for this?

    - To start the program minimized to the Taskbar:

    Create a shortcut to the program, right-click the shortcut, click
    Properties, change "Run:" to "Minimized".

    - To add a shortcut to the Quick Launch, or some other toolbar on the
    Taskbar, click and drag the shortcut to the toolbar.
