@trante:

check out this post of mine: http://www.autohotke...-12#entry505939

if you modify "win_title=Rechner ahk_class SciCalc" to suit your needs, you could minimize the program with one click on the tray icon.

modifying the script even more, you should be able to minimize the program automaticaly... hint: use the forc... ehm... SetTimer. have a look at the AHK manual.

 

@alexball + Tweakyworld:

i don't own a copy of Win8 - so no testing possible on my side... sorry.

if you could narrow your problems a bit down, maybe i could help you nevertheless.

Very useful program here! Any chance of being able to use the XButton1/XButton2 (Mouse button 4 and 5) as keys for the program? The GUI as of right now doesn't like to accept them. It would be awesome to have them included too.

i don't plan to make buttons 4+5 available thru the gui.

but i'll see, if they can be used by tweaking the registry.

stay tuned.

sorry for the delay.

 

open up regedit.exe and navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\KTC\Min2Tray\Starter

now to trigger i.e. BossKey with Button4 (usually left thumb key of mouse) change reg-key HotkeyBossKey to string "XButton1" (without quotes).

Button5 would be "XButton2" in the registry.

 

the XButtons will not be displayed in Min2Tray's prefs windows. if you change prefs there, XButton will be overwritten, i suppose icon_wink.gif

Hello again, just a quick question: is it possible to set a specific application to always minimize to tray?

well, you can use "Startup Minimize" for this task.

but "Startup Minimize" was not designed to continuously monitor the system for windows to be minimized.

the default timeout after startup of Min2Tray is only 25 secs, but this can be tweaked in the prefs.

dunno the max timeout right now. but you could alter the source, of course...

 

alternatively, use this script:

 

http://www.autohotke...-12#entry505939

 

you have modify the script including a loop to monitor the system for the desired window.

if the window appears, hide it away.

should also do the trick.

Hey I searched through this thread and saw mentioned about having a hotkey to restore all. Is there currently a way to do that?

 

I like to have the tray in 'Stealth Mode' so I don't have to see my Icon (I usually only have 1-2 in the tray max), and I'd like to be able to hit a hotkey to maximize them all instead of having to exit stealth mode and then use my mouse (I hate using the mouse).

 

Thanks for all your hard work, it's impressive that you're still supporting this free program after 8 years.

Hi! sorry for the delayed answer...

you have to use BossKey to hide all desired windows (opt-in or opt-out-style).
after that a BossKey-icon will show up in the systray. in its prefs you are able to set a hotkey for unhiding this icon (= all hidden windows at once).

of course the icon will also be invisible when using StealthMode :-)

cheers... Junyx

At first glance min2Tray 1.7.9 seems to be working fine in Windows 8.1 x64.

Love this, just came across it today. My question: where does it store preferences? I would like to take the same preferences across different machines.

hi, Min2Tray stores its prefs in the registry under HKCU/Software/KTC/Min2Tray. there are several subkeys which you should export, too.

hope, that helps :-)

 

cheers... Junyx
