|i have this older laptop- but it has alot of ram ( 2gig) it hardly utilizes any of it. but the cpu is only 1.6 pent M.so its a little on the slow side for the newer programs.|
i would like to install certain programs of my choice to run at startup ( but not show up on the taskbar) ( meaning i dont want to use the startup folder in the Start menu' s Program folder.
i want the programs to be loaded ONCE during startup and be loaded into the system tray as an ICON.. since its in the tray, it will be in memory.that way, when i click on any of the programs i want such as firefox,adobe acrobat, MS word, and other programs that i frequently use, the program would open up right away becuase it has been loaded into memory.(but arent taking up room on the taskbar)
and after startup if i open the programs and then later close the programs, i want it to be removed from memory, then if i load it AGAIN during that windows session i want it to appear on the taskbar.
what im trying to say is i want to be able to load programs without showing up that they are loaded. and only have them do it once- minimized to tray. afterwards i want to be able to run them normally if i could.
is there anyway i can do this? is there a program out there that can do this for me?
