Sometimes the Delphi IDE will fail to minimize when the minimize button is selected from the caption bar. This generally seems to happen when you have used the “Show Desktop” functionality in Windows XP.
If your Delphi IDE is not minimizing, right click on the IDEs button in the Task Bar and select “Restore” (if enabled). You IDE should now minimize.
Note, this also happens in VCL applications and the workaround is also applicable.
Not sure if this is already known, just something I recently came across.
