    Minimize to the tray on startup

    Minimize to tray at startup

    I'm looking for a way to autorun GPU-Z minimized on Windows 7 x64. If I stick a shortcut in the start-up folder and change the properties to "run minimized" it doesn't minimize to the tray but instead to the taskbar. So I have to click on the taskbar and press on minimize every time I reboot my system. This is a little bit annoying if you reboot often.

    Thank you for your time! *Smile Change Minimize Narrator Home to Taskbar or System Tray in Windows 10 :)
