4t Tray Minimizer Free/Pro - Minimize any application to system tray!
You can minimize to tray any application like: MS Word, MS Outlook, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc

4t Tray Minimizer is a lightweight but powerful window manager, which helps you to free up space on the desktop and the taskbar via the following actions:

    Minimize To Tray - any application can be minimized to the system tray.
    Roll Up/Roll Down - you can roll up any window to its title bar.
    Make Transparent - you can make a window semi-transparent and take a look at foreground windows.
    Hide/Show The System Tray - hides the system tray.

The Pro version allows you to control the behavior of your favorite applications: how and when they will be minimized to tray; customize its keyboards shortcuts for launching, restoring or hiding actions; minimize them to tray at start up and more...

Some benefits of the Pro version:

    Would you like to hide your favorite program instead of closing, because it is loading for a long time and you don't want to wait while it will be launched next time? You can redefine the reaction to its close button click and it will be minimized to tray instead of closing. Next time it will be restored much more quickly.
    You can define one hot key to launch, restore and hide the favorite application. When you press the hot key you don't care where your favorite application right now is: it will be launched if it was not running yet; it will be brought up if it was inactive or minimized to tray

The Free and the Pro versions let you to customize the hot keys both for the standard windows actions and for 4t Tray Minimizer actions:

    Minimize All Windows hot key, Minimize Window and Maximize Window hot keys
    Minimize To Tray hot key, Hide Window hot key, Minimize All Windows To Tray hot key, Roll Up/Roll Down hot key and more...

Favorites (Pro version):

    You can quickly activate and bring up the favorite application. You can not worry about the current state of the application. If it is not running yet, it will be launched. If it was minimized or hidden, it will be restored.
    You can fully customize how you want to minimize your favorite application to the system tray. For example, you can override the standard reaction: on the minimize button, on the Close buttons and on the Alt+F4 hot key.
    4t Tray Minimizer can minimize application to tray at startup or at other triggers: when the application is becoming inactive; when the application is minimized to taskbar.
    Ability to hide task bar button for a favorite application
    Some application can restore itself from the minimized state. 4t Tray Minimizer allows you to block self-restoration if the application was minimized to tray.
    Quick launch. You can easy launch new copy of your favorite application.
    The Only one instance can be launched option allows you to limit instances of your application. When the second instance is launched, 4t Tray Minimizer terminates it and brings up the first instance of the application.
    You can customize Minimize to tray / Restore hot key and quickly switch your application between its minimized to tray and foreground states. Also if you use Launch if not running option, the same hot key is able launch your application if it isn't running yet.
    Minimize to tray all instances of the favorite application. You can easy minimize all instances of the favorite application to the system tray. For example, a few windows of Internet Explorer or Firefox may be easy minimized to tray. Of course, you can restore these hidden instances as soon as you wish.

Now it is at version 6:, and the size of this release candidate "6.04" has grown to 1.72MB - but don't we all grow when we get older. There are still two versions, free and Pro (still $20).

The homepage has not "yet" been updated to display version 6, it is still saying version 5. I don't know if I am fast or if he is slow. I do know that 4t Tray Minimizer Pro is a really fine and useful program, but I wrongfully never trusted it to be maintained, so I haven't purchased the lifetime license:

it took two years to go from 6.04 to today's 6.05 RC2. Let's hope the time was spent well. 4t Tray Minimizer 6 Pro (6062-3)
