    Minimizing OneNote on startup, Can Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 be started minimized

    I have been unable to get Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 to start minimized. I have already right clicked on the Shortcut icon, chosen Properties, selected Run: Minimized, and then closed the dialog box by clicking OK (and I have revisited the Properties dialog box to be sure my selection was saved). Still, this application will not start up minimzed. Also, I have been unable to find any command line switch for OneNote that will direct it to open as a minimized application.

    Anyone have a solution? I like to have OneNote available to me whenever I am at my computer so I want to have it in my Startup folder (or the appropriate Registry location); however, it is a nuisance to have to minimize it every time I turn on or restart my computer.

    Thanks,

    DaveW

    Hi Dave and welcome to the forums

    There are 2 ways of doing this, either to have a shortcut in the system tray or the Quick Launch area (or both, if you wish).
    To place a shortcut in the system tray:
    Click on 'Tools' and 'Options...'.

    Click 'Other' and check (tick) the option 'Place OneNote icon in the notification area of the taskbar'. Click 'OK'.

    To place a shortcut in the Quick Launch area, locate the 'Microsoft Office OneNote 2007' shortcut in the start menu, right click on it and select 'Add to Quick Launch'.

    Thank you, "Dwarf." Not precisely what I hoped to accomplish, but they will do pretty nicely.
