    Hi Keymaster

    Perhaps I have overlooked it?

    But: Is it possible to launch FileVoyager minimized in System Tray?

    I start FileVoyager in autostart, so that it’s here when I need it, but I don’t need it right away most of the time…




    Hi Charles,

    No it’s not foreseen in the app, but there’s an easy way to do it by yourself:

    • Go to the Startup folder where you added the shortcut to FileVoyager
      • you can go there by navigating to %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup in your favorite file manager, or a more recent alternative which consist of navigating to Shell:Startup
    • Normally, you should have a shortcut to FileVoyager. Right click the shortcut and open Properties
    • In the Properties windows, change the value of the Run field to Minimized. Then apply the change.
    • From now on, FV will start up with a new Windows session, in minimized.

    On my side, I add a to do list item in my backlog to implement this feature out-of-the-box



    Hi Keymaster

    Sheesh – why didn’t I think of this solution 🤔🤔🤔

    Works like a charm, thank you! 👍


    P.S: When launching FileVoyager from the Windows Start Menu there is another link to FileVoyger in:

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\FileVoyager which has to be adapted in the same way you described as well, if one starts the app from there…


    Hi Kemaster

    You did send me a link to the wordpress site of yours.

    I can not log in to it, given the preset login credentials, which are the same as on this forum..

    It says: “Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page.” ….

    Have a nice evening!
