    @Pipppero2007,
    I have followed the ideas in one of those links and it works: I will detail this for you as given in the links already posted.
    1. Create a bat file containing this command:
    Attachment 319749
    I start with this step: it doesn't work on W10. It will launch always as icon, not minimized.

    Could somebody try this on W10?

    Perhaps you are referring to the Key
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TaskManager
    See Backup and Restore Task Manager Settings - TenForumsTutorials

    I don't know how that might be used to send it straight to a minimised to SysTray state upon opening.

    It may well be that, I may have even originally got it from here years ago (or the eight forums).

    Just seen the other posts, yeah using that bat file, launched with task scheduler on login is probably the way to go.

    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.

    The exe file I posted as post #18 works as confirmed by Try3.

    No taskbar icon.

    Thanks - I just wanted to confirm OPs question.

    I'm actually okay with it starting unminimized since I like to look at certain things in TM when I first boot up.

    Hi Try3, please try this tiny exe file which I created as a 1 line Autohotkey file.

    I've zipped it to upload here. Quite independent of task manager options. Thanks.
    Thanks very much dalchina, that works perfectly on my 64 bit machine and is the first solution that has worked for me!

    Is it possible for you to create a 32 bit version for my wife's netbook?

    Hi, apologies for delay. On your wife's netbook install a copy of Autohotkey (free).

    Download and unzip the attached source code.
    Rt click the ahk file, click 'Compile'.
    That should create an exe file in the same folder.

    You can then create a shortcut to that with admin rights, or have it launched at startup as admin via the task scheduler for example.

    Ahhh... your weariness would have been at an end had you but taken the initiative to actually download the zip file.

    You would then have found it contains a file with extension .ahk

    This is in fact a text file which you can open in Notepad e.g.

    Then you can rest again. Thank you.
