Batch file to start program in the tray.

#1 Post by piazzolla » 30 Dec 2020 06:03

There are programs, such as Thunderbird and Postbox, which do not have the option to be started with windows already minimized to the tray bar. I think it would be the happiness of many to have a bach file that allows this. I searched for programs on the web, but there are utilities that only allow you to minimize an already open program in the tray bar, but not what I ask.
Thanks in advance to anyone who could create this batch file for me

As to what I know about it, you cannot minimize arbitrary processes to the systray. Programs have to be designed for this to do.
