Is there a way to load Pianissimo Standalone minimized?

Postby Riojazz » Sun Jan 21, 2018 3:07 pm

I have Pianissimo in my Windows startup folder and it starts fine upon bootup. Is there a way to have it start minimized? I can get it to RELOAD minimized after closing the program (right-click on the icon, Properties, open minimized) but this does not apply when it is loaded on Windows bootup.

Hi,

What files did you put in your Windows Startup folder? The shortcut to run Pianissimo?

Also, what version of Windows?

Hi,

A Google search reveals that some people attempt this by making a batch file with a "/min" switch:

start /min "" "C:\Windows\notepad.exe"

I'll try that, thank you.

EDIT: yes, that works fine. Thanks!
