    Would anyone know of a way to force a program to open in the taskbar instead of the system tray. When I open Backup Maker it opens in the system tray and when I close it I have to remember to choose Program>Exit from the interface or exit through the sys tray icon. I thought it'd be a lot easier to just avoid the sys tray altogether if possible. I tried running the shortcut with a /notray switch but it didn't work. I'm using Vista 32 bit.

    I don't think that there is some general switch or command that will let you do what you want. Usually there are settings in app that one can use to tell program how to open or close. If I were you I would check if there are any settings in program preferences regarding your problem.

    Thanks tomazyk. I did check and double check the program settings before posting. I should've mentioned that.

    I tested the software but couldn't find an option to do what you want.

    I also checked their forum and found a thread where administrator claims that this functionality is currently not available.

    Here is a link to translated thread:

    I think that it wouldn't be too much trouble if they add an option where you could choose what clicking on X will do - minimize or close an app.

    No it shouldn't be that difficult to do. A lot of software has that option. I'm very happy with Backup Maker otherwise so I can live with it. Hopefully they'll had that option sometime in the future. :)
