Hi,

I used to use a small utility for windows95 that was able to minimise a running application to the system tray and place a small icon there instead of in the taskbar.

I think the utility was free, it was not minimize magic. It could minimise anything directly to the tray, and had no configuration requireing seting-up.

The first person to point me at this utility, or a good FREE equivilant that suits my needs gets 80 expert points

Freeware, but beta.  I used to use it back when I had 98 and i rather liked it.

Sorry, none of these programs do what I want, I'm not saying they are no good, just not what I was looking for.

Toggle minimise was close, but I want to be able to choose which programs go into the system tray rather than all minimized programs.

I guess i'm not understanding.

TraySaver lets you pick the app and minimize it by clicking on the app and checking the little "Minimize to tray" box.  

What is it you're trying to do if not that?

Oh, ok.  If the beta worries you, thats quite allright.  Not everyone is cool for using beta versions.  You're more than welcome to hold out for someone to suggest a non beta program, i'm not trying to pressure you.

Tray saver is rather good, still a little worried with beta software, but very nice
