Keyboard shortcut to System Tray

  SGBowen 14:54 06 Mar 2004

I have a programme that runs in the System Tray (on Windows 98) which I open up as a window by clicking on its icon. How can I make a keyboard shortcut to achieve the same effect? If I knew the DOS code to do this, I could assign it to a key in Winkey (which I use).

but why not try something like this click here ?

Yes, I like Winkey, but I can't see how to make it open a programme that is already running in the System Tray.

I just realized it's what your already using ;-(

So, can you not make a shortcut to the desktop and then use Winkey to launch the program?

You can always stop the program running in the System Tray, by using the command in Start; Run;


and under the Startup tab, disable the program.

Is that not an option?

It's a programme that starts up automatically when I start another programme. So I can't stop it being in the System Tray in the way you suggest. You would just think there must be a way of using a keyboard shortcut as the equivalent of clicking on a system tray icon.
