Python Application in Taskbar
#1
I have an application that uses tkinter for GUI and pyinstaller for building.

Now it just opens in window. I would like to make it possible to close window of application, but remain it running in taskbar (i.e. running in background of OS).

How I can do it?

P.S. I talk about Windows.

Minimize to taskbar or to tray?
because to minimize to taskbar you use the little dash in the top right-corner.

I am not sure about terminology, so I just show what I talk about.

I want that my application was there, not here:

yes, that is system tray, the other is taskbar. Tray may be considered part of the taskbar by some

Unfortunately I haven't seen tutorial on this for Tkinter. Maybe someone else has.
I have seen some for wxPython though, but it's different GUI framework
