    Windows Media Center Minimize to Tray

    Good morning everyone,

    Is there an alternative or easy hack to have Windows Media Center minimize to the system tray instead of the taskbar? I have installed TrayIt, but it will not automatically put it into the tray, you have to go into the TrayIt program and choose hide window. I am looking for something more automatic. Thanks!

    Hmmm, there are a couple of ways....

    A couple of keyboard shortcut apps like HoeKey will do that easily - you assign a keyboard shortcut to a particular command that sends the item to the system tray, and I used that successfully for a *very* long time....

    But for some reason I though that MCEDev.com also does it, although I don't see it on the list of things it can do....

    Nice addition to Media Center, but alas it did not have minimize to system tray (or I over looked it). Thanks for the link though
