It's small and it works :)

Minor bug: shift+left click does not minimize console apps, use right click instead.

Wow this is great for school because whenever a teacher comes by I press my hotkey to hide my programs apart for the filtered ones like "Word,notepad and the such;))

Downloaded Minimize To Tray V1.2.
The best of its kind so far!
It hides everything apart from what is filtered out ("legitimate" soft ;) )
Do not know what "magic key" is and the developer's site is down.
Minor thing - it does not hide it's own icon in the tray.

Now when I tried this program out it changed the registry so I still kind of iffy but overall i like it it mini's the windows fast skype , itunes , folders , firefox , adobe reader> Can be closed in the system tray or even hiden> Now you can filter these open windows not to go into the tray by pointing at the open windows you want to have open. But had trouble with the magic key Overall Good but not great

It's important to remember that portablefreeware isn't actually responsible for the development and/or maintenance of any of the apps they list. If you're having an issue with an app, it's always best to notify the actual developer.

Mentioning you have a problem here can help others avoid issues as well, definitely. But at the very least mention what version of Windows you're running, as it may help with identifying the trouble.

Oops, sorry! Noticed too late that Albator was probably addressing Alexandre. It's a pity one can't edit one's reply in this section. ;-)
