Right click on Windows Taskbar should _NOT_ display the window!

Nine times out of ten when I right click a task bar item, I want to click the 'close' option.  Often this is because I am trying to free up memory (I usually run way to many things).  I do not want to wait for the program to be swapped back into active memory, get it's act together, and paint itself.  Instead, it should quietly try to close the program in the background (which may entail bringing it into memory but possibly not as a top, UI-blocking, priority).

Of course, all the other options besides 'close' do require the window to display, and sometimes 'close' does also, as when a 'would you like to save' dialog comes up.  But fine, paint only when you need to please!
