How to hide VLC media player in taskbar

Every now and then we need to limit the number of minimized windows of various programs in our taskbar, especially it’s already-overcrowded with lots of windows that you are working on. To hide VLC media player minimized window in taskbar what you have to do is Click on “Tools” menu and then “Preferences” and when the preferences window opens if you can see “Interface settings” as the title of the window then it’s OK to proceed to the next step. But if you can’t see “Interface settings”  make sure at the left bottom of the window under “Show Settings” title the “simple” radio button is selected. If it is already selected on “All”, just click on the “Simple” radio button and it will be selected. Now you should see “Interface Settings” heading and if you still can’t see it, click on the “Interface” icon at the left top and now you should see the “Interface Settings”.

Now what you do is, under the “Look and Feel” menu see whether the “Show systray icon” is checked or not. If the tick box is empty, click on it and it will be checked with a “Right” mark. Now click “Save” at the bottom of the window and close VLC media player. Now open the VLC media player again and now you should see not only the taskbar window for VLC player but also a system icon at the right bottom of the computer screen (Quick launch icons) where Time is displayed. Now keeping the VLC media player window open, click on the System Tray icon once. Now the VLC player Taskbar should disappear and is available in the systray (quick launch icons next to time display). You can launch VLC media player whenever you want by clicking on the SysTray icon. One thing you should keep in mind is when you click on the systray vlc icon the original VLC player program should be open not not be minimized. And if it is minimized to taskbar, clicking on the system tray icon of VLC media player will open it and you will need to click on the systray vlc player icon one more time to hide it in task bar and to minimize it to systray.
