Making GreatNews start with Windows

Postby RogerGW » Fri Sep 22, 2006 1:59 pm

Is there an option to make GN start when Windows starts? If so, where is it? I'm running XP SP2.

Sorry if this already been asked but I couldn't see where it had.

Regards,
Roger Whitehead

You can create a shortcut in Windows Startup group to achieve that.

In the shortcut property dialog, select Run Minimized.

Yeh I know, but that starts it minimized to the taskbar as well.

Trying to get it to start in tray only.

Startup Delayer will allow this! :D

But maybe the option will also be added to GreatNews in a newer version.
