I would like to have 8start be hidden (min to tray) upon startup until I click on the icon in the notification area. I have 8start set to hide after selection and start upon boot but would like it to be out of the way when I boot the PC.
Unless there is a switch I could add to the end of the command line then place that shortcut in the startup folder.

I use already a launcher for 8start launcher (sorry for the pun :) )...
because after a standby 8start not responding.
With this I can launch 8start also if is already in memory.

Now, I have I added the option to hide the window after the execution; put any parameter in the command line.

Code:
; start8start.ahk
; launch 8start also if is already in memory
; useful after a standby, hybernate ....

#SingleInstance, force
#NoTrayIcon

DetectHiddenWindows, on 

IfNotExist, %A_WorkingDir%\8start.exe
{
MsgBox Current folder ERROR
ExitApp
}

IfWinExist,AhPanel
{
Winactivate, AhPanel
;WinKill,8start
Winclose,8start
}

Sleep, 1000

Run, %A_WorkingDir%\8start.exe
if 0<>0
{
  WinWait, AhPanel
  Sleep, 500
  WinHide
}


Note: compile the source code with AutoHotKey and put the file in the same folder of 8start.exe

I can not run 8start in hide mode but I can hide after it start...
...probably depends on the second sleep time....
increase sleep time value and remove the line "if 0<>0"

Fabio, thanks for the script.

It took some changes to the script but I was finally able to do what I wanted to do.

Thanks again.

May I know what happen to 8start after computer sleep?

I m encounter the problem that some time icon missing in systray, I think I have fixed it.

And in addition, I added a countdown feature in 8start systray (80% done), this will be the highlight in version 1.9 :-)

It would be possible to add the autohide feauture at windows startup in the next version, withoud compiling scripts?

I tried some other launchers, and I find that this tool is wanderful, with the "hidden in the systray at startup" feauture it wolud be PERFECT!
