Default Hiding software?

Is there any software that hides tray icons or actual internet explorer windows?

When I say hiding I mean, say I had 2 internet explorer windows and brought one to the front, one would hide behind but it wouldnt show up on the toolbar therefore it just looks as if you have open.

Tried searching google but cant seem to find any.

All help is much appreciated.

I don't think it exists. If you can, you can try, but it may end up messing Windows.

The only thing i can think of is to group similar taskbar buttons. Right click on Start > Properties >Taskbar > then tick group similar taskbar buttons. This will group all IE pages together as one so you only see 1 IE in the taskbar even if you have 50 sites open. Try it.

well what you can do is this: get a browser that has tabbing enabled, and then what you do if you are on computer forums is have a browser window open and have another tab in the same window, with sometyhing appropriate on that tab. and then have a whole other browser window open with something appropriate open on it. then what you do if someone comes is switch to the tab with the appropriate thing on it, minimize that window, and then get the other browser window in focus. then when people look at the taskbar, the browser window that has the inappropraite page open will have the title of the appropriate site on it because the appropriate tab would be in focus. idk if i worded that confusingly or not but thats what i do when i look at porn lol
