    unable to create tray icon...

    here gaian to update for the owner of the tool my experience:
    NOTHING DONE of different in my pc and now at its starts,of the pc.., it works....,the tray icon tool..

    so to sum up:
    RANDOMLY it works
    RANDOMLY it starts at start up,or with its settings or in a proper task scheduler BUT with the error:
    - failed to create tray icon-...so you can only see the gpu-z.exe in task manager but you cannot open or see it..
    to do it you have to stop it in task and to re start the tool manually..at this point you can see it in tray area and open its window on the
    desktop....


    what you think W1zzz...?

    hoping to see yr replies ..!!
    thxs so much in advance

    cheers

    strange task tray icon. computer with a cowboy hat

    Task Manager on start-up and minimized to tray

    Confirmed on W10 2004 what you said - Task Manager starts minimized with an icon in the taskbar. If I click on the Task Manager taskbar icon, then minimize the Task Manager window, the taskbar icon goes away and Task Manager remains in the tray.
