I know i am kind of beating a dead horse around the internet with this, but i used to be operating on windows 7 and my code functioned for showing a taskbar icon for the userform when the application window was hidden, but when i upgraded to windows 10, the code stopped working. is there anything i need to modify about it to force it to show an icon for the userform?
Code:
Option Explicit
