    Click Here to open a Kelly's Korner page.

    Scroll down to line 240 and in the left-hand column, click on "Programs Aren't Minimized In The Taskbar" to download a small .vbs file. You might have to right click it, then left click "Save target as" or, if using Firefox, "Save link as."

    Once the file is saved to the harddrive, run it according to the directions at the top of the Kelly's Korner page.
