Solution 1

Why do you want that?
Only one balloon tip can display on the taskbar at a time. Attempting to display a balloon tip when one is currently displayed on the taskbar causes the timeout value to be ignored. The behavior is slightly different depending on the operating system and whether the balloon tip is from another, or the same, application. When the second balloon tip is from another application, the first balloon tip will display for the minimum timeout value before the second appears, regardless of the value of timeout. (MSDN)
You probably need something custom. Start here:[^]
