AceHide sits in your System Tray and lets you hide program windows instantly. Hiding means completely removing the window from display - including the taskbar icon that shows a program is running.
It can be used to hide just the active window or all windows. This can be done via a right-click on the System Tray icon or by assigning hotkeys to each action.
Hotkeys can be assigned for hiding/showing the active window and hiding/showing all windows. The most commonly used functions can also be activated via a single and double-click on the AceHide icon.
Password protection can be applied to certain functions, including showing a window and accessing the preferences dialogue.
