I am trying to minimize the form to system tray. I have written a piece of code. But the only problem i am facing is that when i try to restore the window from system tray. Win Form appears in taskbar but has lost focused means it doesnt appear on the screen automatically i have to click on taskbar to restore it....
Here is my code
private void Form1_Resize(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (this.WindowState == FormWindowState.Minimized)
        notifyIcon1.Visible = true;
    else if (this.WindowState == FormWindowState.Normal)
        notifyIcon1.Visible = false;

private void notifyIcon1_MouseDoubleClick(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)

Catch the event that displays the form when you're restoring it from the systray, and add this line to the event handler.

this.WindowState = FormWindowState.Normal;
