This may be obvious, but many very bright people think I'm asking about apps that start with Windows.
I create scripts that control everything, including which programs start with Windows.
I've got an app that starts in the system tray (notification area). It's a small applet, with no startup
options. If you want the main window to open the only option is to right-click the tray icon and select
"Parameters." I have no idea why the author chose the word "parameters" to open the program window.
I want to add this applet to a script, but it's useless to me unless the window opens immediately after it
starts. The help file doesn't list any command line options. Since "parameters" is an item in the tray icon
context menu, I tried the same word on a shortcut target line.
It would look something like this:
"C:\Program Files\Program Name" /parameters > or > "C:\Program Files\Program Name" -parameters
It doesn't work.
NirCmd (from NirSoft) has a long list of window commands. I tried several, but I can't force this applet to
open a window after it starts.
I need a tray launcher that will wait for my applet to start and immediately open its main window. Maybe
something like a Firefox add-on that would give this applet command options it does not natively possess.
Googling produces a long list of free apps that minimize any window to the tray. In effect, I need the exact
opposite! I want my "tray only" app to open a window right after it starts.
