One thing about Windows ‘95 is that its "friendly" system tray can sometimes get in the way if you need a full-screen look in an application.
I was working on such a program recently, which looked great in workgroups, but positively average under Win95 - the system tray just oughtn’t to have been there.
A bit of thought, and some poking around window classes, came up with a class name of
'Shell_traywnd' as the class name for that particular window. The rest was pretty
straightforward, as the simple demo in Listing One illustrates.
