Sometimes I would like to minimize a running application to the Tray instead of the common Taskbar position. A quick search on the net gave me a few solutions to choose from. The one I ended up with is a small freeware utility that is totally invisible and has both 32-bit and 64-bit support.

It’s a small script that add Right-Click Functionality to the minimize button, while keeping the Normal Setting using the Left-Click.


With RBTray installed on your computer you may Right-Click on any Minimize Button to hide the window in your Tray. If you Left-Click the window will minimize to the Taskbar as you’re custom with.

RB-Tray comes in a ZIP file which contains both the 32-bit and 64-bit, and require you to manually add it to Windows Startup Folder. To serve you better I have created a small Setup Utility to do the job for you. The installer will install 32-bit OR 64-bit as needed and add the program to your Startup Folder. Use this one as is, and don’t blame me if it doesn’t work for you.

    What a great find! Thanks for the tip Thomas I'll definitely be using this.
    Any reason the setup file isn't hosted here? rapidshare sucks :)

    How did you get the titlebar button?

    1. Rich says:

      You just right click the minimize button. The other two buttons (to the left) are for Ultramon.
