    Wanted: Free App to click mouse in specific part of screen at startup


    I would like for folks here to recommend a free application that performs a mouse click on a certain area of my display when Windows starts. I don't need the program to do anything else other than what I want it to do. I've tried Mini Mouse Macro, which looked promising but did not perform the mouse click that I required. I also tried Auto Mouse, but it had way too many features and I couldn't find where I could make it perform this one single task with no human intervention. You're probably wondering why I need such a tool. I have one program that starts when I start Windows that will not minimize itself on startup and it has no option to do such. So every time my laptop starts or every time my wife's PC starts, there is this window sitting there that just needs to be minimized with a single mouse click. It doesn't sound annoying, but it wears on you if you restart your machine several times during the day. An automated mouse click would solve this annoyance, but I can't seems to find a program that does this simple task. Any recommendations?

    :)

    Write a 2 (perhaps 3) line Autohotkey script that basically does this

    run, <path to program>
    ; might need a line here e.g. winwaitactive, <program identifier>
    winminimize, <program identifier>

    With Autohotkey installed:
    The script goes in <suitable-name>.ahk
    Double click to run it
    Rt click, compile it to <suitable-name>.exe

    You then have an exe you can use to launch and minimise the prog.

    -------------------------------
    Or just use a single line, executed after the program has been launched as is.
    winminimize, <program identifier>

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

    Auto Hot Key (AutoHotkey) is exactly what I was looking for.

    The application is very powerful, far more than what I am using it for - just a simple mouse click at a specific spot on the display.

    Certainly, I will be using this program for other things in the future.
