    I've read this old thread:
    How To Automaticaly Start A Program Minimized

    since I'm facing the same problem (I want to start a couple of apps minimized plus task manager)
    and I tried the following commands but they don't work:

    Code: start /min "" "D:\Utilities\PortableApps\XMouseButtonControl\64bit (x64)\XMouseButtonControl.exe" start /min "" "C:\Windows\System32\Taskmgr.exe"[/quote] there's another app started with this command:
    Code: "C:\Program Files\avs\bin\avscc.exe" --log[/quote] which also shows a popup after login

    looking forward for your help,
    thanks in advance

    :)

    Thank you very much for this detailed explanation. Another solution Bree found was to add the argument "/background" in task scheduler.

    Kind regards

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.


    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

    How To Automaticaly Start A Program Minimized


    I want to start a program (Zotero) minimized, so I tried the bat file approach with a single line:

    start /min "C:\Program Files (x86)\Zotero\zotero.exe"

    and it failed to start at all. I went to Command Prompt and tried

    C:
    start /min "Program Files (x86)\Zotero\zotero.exe"

    and, surprise, it didn't work there either! It simply creates and minimizes another C: command prompt window (if I start without the /min, it opens the C: window). The only thing that worked was to navigate to the final directory, and then it started, minimized or not. So the final working bat file is:

    C:
    cd "Program Files (x86)\Zotero"
    start /min zotero.exe

    I tried the same sequence of tests with another program, and the same thing happened.

    I'm happy with the solution, but does anyone have any idea what's going on?

    Cheers!

    Ed
