use the withdraw() function, e.g.

from Tkinter import *
root = Tk()
root.withdraw()				# Hide the window
root.deiconify()				# Unhide the window

Subject: [Tkinter-discuss] Minimizing a Python/Tk application


I want a Python/Tk application to minimize itself as soon as it starts
acts in the background). Is there a way to make this happen?

An another question: how can I make this application appear on the tool
bar, next to the volume control, anti-virus software and similar
applications? I have searched and cannot find anything related.

Thanks in advance,
