Do you have the problem of running out of room on your taskbar,
caused by too many minimized windows? If so ToggleMINIMIZE is the program for
you! When running, this program will intercept all programs heading off to your
taskbar and pen them into the System Tray showing only an icon. To restore the
program you simply click the icon. To help you tell what icons are minimized
programs there is the option for a coloured dot to be placed beside the each
icon. As a further enhancement you can either selectively disable or enable
specifically titled windows. In short this is the perfect program for someone
with a case of minimisitis.
However, the program is not suitable for all. I quite frequently use "Drag &
Drop" to minimized programs, but this doesn’t work. Customized system menus are
not supported either. Furthermore the title bar (shown as a Tooltip in the
System Tray) remains the same as it was when it was minimized so download
progress windows, for example, will need to be maximized to be monitored.
In short, the program does not offer the same functionality of a minimized
window. However, if the loss seems worthwhile, and making the taskbar bigger and
auto-hiding it does not help you, then this program will suit your needs.
Personally I feel that System Tray clutter created by this program is more of a
Ease of Installation
