I don't know why many programs, including Q-Dir just can't leave a shortcut at the Windows Startup menu, no matter I set them to start with it. Even some programs do create the shortcut, but it doesn't work. It's not really a problem for me, but I'd like Q-Dir to start with Windows and keep alive in my System tray. What I can do is to build some automatic tasks in another program which allow me to do so when it starts. It works like a personal startup menu. But when I set Q-Dir to start, it always starts in normal view (a standard opened window), and I want to make it start down at system tray. My question is what character should I add to the command line to get it so? I mean something like this: C:\Program Files\Q-Dir\Q-Dir.exe -tray?
It's probably because I didn't install it, but I'm using Q-dir as a portable program? (just used the zip package) Is it a real difference to start a program with the registration key "Run" instead of adding its link to the start folder (Shell: Start)?
Yes, the -bg option is exactly what I need. Then I tried both auto-start options (all users and just me), but they don't start in the background, in the taskbar, or in the foreground. However, I checked the run button in HKCU / HKLM every time ... while testing this start with a shortcut like ... Tools \ Q-Dir \ Q-Dir_x64.exe -bg that worked well.?
I would like to merge the "inverting" of FAQ 102/118 (= autostart activation) + FAQ 62/118 (= minimize to subject). How is autostart minimized on the subject? I didn't find the trick in the software in the FAQ either.
