SOLVED: Command Prompt to Tray
« on: March 17, 2013, 03:39:39 PM »
Hi folks,

Every now and then I will run a batch file or exe file that essentially just displays a command prompt window while it does it's thing (think game server). However, I don't like the command prompt window taking up space on my task bar. I also don't want to run it in headless more because then there's no way (that I know of) to cleanly stop the server and close it. The only choice I know of to end something in headless mode is to end the process.

So what I would like is some sort of utility or possibly even a wrapper utility that will run the batch file and give me the option to minimize it to the tray so it is hidden and takes up less space on my task bar.

Thanks!
