App beside the clock...

Post by ace16vitamine » Wed Feb 26, 2020 11:39 pm

Hi all,

I have a simple question:

What can I do that my App is running beside the clock icon right in my task bar? See screenshot.

My Idea is that the application starts with Autorun (or as a service or whatever) and that it is possible to manage it beside the clock icon. That means I can make a klick with the right mouse button or double click to open the app on my screen but it is minimized on windows startup.

That's the System Tray, and the only LC tool I know of that's worked with that is STSTray: ... tstray.htm

It's quite old, and I'm not sure it still works with Win10. Perhaps give the demo version a try, and if it doesn't work you can write the author, Ken Ray, at that site.
