    Hi,
    Most programs have registry hacks or options in the menus that disable their splash screen on startup.
    If those options are not available, can one add a flag to the startup entry to disable the splash screen?
    Thanks.
    The program I'm looking to do this with is Mouselaunch. It's one amazing time saver for the poweruser.

    Another solution is to see if there is a logo or splash image file in the program's directory.

    I have several programs like this and just renaming the file prevents it from loading.

    regards,

    THanks for replying,
    I finally found the way to do it by following my nose: add a parameter to the target:
    "C:\Program Files\Acronis\DiskDirector\DiskDirector.exe"-hide.
    Does wonders. Thanks
