Open ContextMenuStrip on left mouse click on NotifyIcon

Hi,I was working with an application and faced this problem, I have this code :public partial class Form2 : Form    {        public Form2()        {            InitializeComponent();        }        private void notifyIcon1_MouseClick(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)        {            if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Left)            {                contextMenuStrip1.Show(this, Control.MousePosition); // Or any other overload            }        }        private void Form2_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)        {            notifyIcon1.Icon = Icon;        }    }Here, in design mode, i have set contextMenuStrip1 as notifyIcon1's ContextMenuStrip. When I right click on notifyIcon1, it opens the context menu and when I click somewhere else, it closes. But with my code opens the contextmenu on left click and when I open context menu that way, it shows in taskbar and doesn't close when I click some where else.In short, I want to open contextmenustrip when user left clicks and right clicks on the notifyicon and it works well with right click by default but not with left click. And I want to avoid using SendMessage to send left click message.Is there any way I can work this out?

notifyIcon works with windows forms but not services....

If I create a NotifyIcon in a designer of a windows application and assign an icon to it - it works just fine.   It shows up in the tray, and behaves just as it should.

However, if I create it in a windows service, then install that service and run it - the icon doesn't show up in the tray.  I have no idea why.

Any suggestions?

oh also, I couldn't find a better forum to post this in, so hope this works.
